Andy Netzel, if you can enjoy going car-free in January (“A Car-Free Life: The Test Drive,” March 2008), you are going to love being car-free in May. As part of National Bike Month, there will be lots of ways for you and everyone else to celebrate bicycles. There’s a benefit for Walk + Roll Cleveland in the car-free East 4th Street District on May 5, plus numerous groups are organizing the first-ever Cleveland Bicycle Week for May 10 though 18. Events include Bike to Work, Discover Mountain Biking in the City, The Every Saturday Social Ride, Bike to the Movies, Chippewa Valley Road Race, Discover the Towpath and much more. Visit www.clevelandbicycleweek.org
for more information. You’ve inspired me to try going car-free. I’ll look for you on the bus and wave cheerfully as I pedal by.
