30 Days of Biking

Tomorrow is the first day of Round 2 of 30 Days of Biking, a rapidly growing national (worldwide?) movement with local MPLS roots. To participate, all you have to do is pledge to ride your bicycle every day from September 1-September 30. From the 30 Days of Biking homepage:

The only rule for 30 Days of Biking is that you bike every day for 30 days—around the block, 20 miles to work, whatever suits you—then share your adventures online. We believe biking enriches life, builds community, and preserves the Earth.

My favorite part of this movement is that the organizers don’t make any assumptions about the kind of equipment you’re using, where you prefer to ride, or how far you want to ride. I also really like the grassroots organizing element.

There’s a kickoff ride on Wednesday, September 1, 2010, that begins downtown MPLS at 6:00 PM. I haven’t officially committed to participate in 30 Days of Biking, yet, but I might show up to the kickoff ride anyway.

What impact do grassroots movements like this have on encouraging new ridership? Is anyone out there planning to participate? Leave a comment to let others know how you plan to “share your adventures online.”
