Bike-Walk at MN Capitol

I found out about and participated in the Annual State Capitol Walk/Bike which is being promoted by the the "Switch My Trip" program, encouraging folks to replace a drive-by-yourself trip and instead take the bus or train, carpool, bicycle, walk, telework or vanpool. 

The commissioners from the Minnesota Departments of Health and the Minnesota Department of Transportation were on hand to lead a bike-ride (in side-by-side recumbent tandem) through the streets of downtown St. Paul. It was fun to ride a few miles with some St. Paul commuters and see folks smile in reaction to our little platoon, and especially to see the heads turn at the dapper pair in what I have come to term the Cony Island-style tandem.

A few photos of our group ride:
