I RIDE FOR SYLVIA

So, just last week Sylvia was venting to us her frustration with people's constant questioning of her reasons for biking. "I want to make a Tshirt" she said, "that says I RIDE FOR, then underneath put a different reason, because there are so many."

(She also wanted to make a shirt to wear during rush hour traffic that says "Don't you wish YOU were biking", to jab at all those stuck in the congestion, as she whizzed by them in the bike lane!)

We will realize her Tshirt idea, by creating I RIDE FOR shirts to wear during the silent ride. I RIDE FOR:

Bluer Skies.
Your Lungs.
Health.
Strength.
Joy.
Less traffic.
Quieter streets.
Asthmatics.
Everyone who can't.
Sylvia.

Please take a moment and share your reasons.

i ride for quiet moments of solitude as well as for the greatest joy and exhilaration i've found my body can create. i ride for my global responsibility, for how it makes me part of a community, and for every aspect of my health. i ride for my independence, for exploration, for taking advantage of every opportunity i have, and for advocating for cyclists everywhere.
