What a great Bike to Work Day! 458 people rode by and so many of them stopped by to enjoy food, coffee and good company & conversation!
We enjoyed having you at our Energizer Station and enjoyed the company of our Mayor, Peggy Thomsen who handed out bike bags to all comers. Albany Traffic & Safety Commissioner and former Mayor Farid Javandel led the 2nd Annual City Officials’ Bike to Work Day Ride Around Albany, which ended up at our Station. Thanks to both of you.
