Big Red Bicycle Christmas

Big red bicycleIt's easy to get caught up in the wonkery of fighting climate change: cap and trade and feed-in tariffs and vehicle miles travelled. It's important stuff, and our bread and butter here at Sierra Daily, but we admit: It's not a whole lot of fun. On the other hand, what is a whole lot of fun--and is protecting our beautiful planet at the same time--is riding your bike. Preferably that big red shiny bicycle you found beneath the Xmas tree. (Sorry, the Sierra Club's limited edition Public Bike comes only in green.)

Sierra's offices will be closed next week while we all go out and focus on the the second part of the Club's motto: "Explore, Enjoy, and Protect the Planet." Meanwhile, here's a holiday treat: Nora and One Left's ode to the joy of riding your bike. Happy holidays from all of us at Sierra.
