Today is our local "Bike to Work and School Day" event, with local celebration stations set up around town.

We homeschoolers were actually biking FROM school, but hey, that counts too, doesn't it?
The boys enjoyed the treats at each stop, and the sticker collecting.

Peter dropped his chain along our route, and thankfully there was a bike repair station just a few blocks away (with free coffee!). The bike mechanic corrected the chain situation, and then Peter asked him to look at the brakes.

Well.... that led to a rather detailed bike repair job which included a ride to the local bike HUB to pick up a new brake cable. The scene there (with live music, free pancake feed and plenty of tattoos and piercings) rounded out our educational experience for the morning.

We were interviewed by a local reporter, and witnessed some very interesting riding styles.

A good time was had by all.
