Grand Valley Bike to Work Month

On Wednesday, May 4, 2022, you'll probably see a ludicrously middle-aged guy walking a bike down 5th Street in Grand Junction. That's me. I haven't fired up my bike since sometime early during the pandemic, sometime around March 2020. It's time to get that thing out of mothballs and take it for a spin. It won't be pretty, but it'll be fun.
