Spring is a lovely season for Bike Easy
's Bike to Work Week
, but the rainy season comes with its own calendar busters. The annual event, which was also rescheduled last year
due to rain, is taking another, literal raincheck this year (it was supposed to kick off tonight with a community forum on city cycling). Since the day was expanded to a whole week, the same schedule will apply.
