Bike to Work Day

Bike-to-Work Day is a national event that began in 1956 and is part of Bike-to-Work Week, which is in turn part of National Bike Month.

This year, Intellectual Ventures had five teams participate in Bike Month. Here at the lab, 10 bike commuters enlisted, dubbing ourselves the LABicyclists. Last Friday morning, for Bike-to-Work Day, we rounded up a posse in Seattle to tackle the long trek to the Eastside. The group met on the Burke Gilman trail in front of the University of Washington, hopped buses over the pedestrian-prohibited 520 bridge, then proceeded through the mean Bellevue backstreets. [Check out our route.] We took a detour over to the Lincoln campus where Top Pot doughnuts and other tasty treats were being served to all of the company’s cyclists.
