The energizer station in the Walgreens parking lot in Liberty Lake was pretty busy this morning when I went by. There were about four bicyclists there at a few minutes after 7 a.m. The station at the Bank of America building in downtown Spokane didn’t have a lot of riders when I went past it this morning, but had lots of staff from Coffman Engineers ready to greet people who did show up. Thanks for getting the large amount of participation Coffman Engineers. Those were the only stations I saw today, but I’ll report on others as I see them. In the meantime, here are some updates for Bike to Work Week.

Ride of Silence
Spokane and Spokane Valley will join the International Ride of Silence to Draw Attention to Bicycle Safety. Hundreds of cities around the world will hold a Ride of Silence™ tonight to mourn those who have been killed and to raise awareness of cyclists on the road.
If you would like to take part in the downtown Spokane ride, meet at Sprague and Division at 6:45 p.m. where a white “ghost bike” memorializes David Squires, killed in March when he was hit by a driver. All riders are welcome. Ride organizers will hand out armbands and signs.
In Spokane Valley, Paul Warner and his family have organized a Ride of Silence in honor of his sister Gloria, killed two years ago in a bike/car crash in Gig Harbor. That Ride of Silence begins at 7 p.m. at the Mirabeau Park parking lot next to the waterfall and runs 12 miles on the Centennial Trail.

The Indaba station was pretty skimpy: 1 small pot of coffee and some cliff bars. But the Coffman station was great!: with coffee, cliff bars, water, fruit, and maybe more… plus several great people to talk to.
I also went by Taste Cafe for my free bicycle cookie, yum!
Can't talk now… have to go get my free cookie.
