It’s Day 3 of 30 Days of Biking and our social media channels indicate that many of you are with us for the ride! You’re communicating with us through Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to tell us about your rides, experiences and inspirations.
It’s a chatty group of joyful cyclists sharing experiences and photos, and encouraging each other along on our 30 Days of Biking event page on Facebook. Join our conversation! Here’s a sampling of comments:
1st day of it, I am enjoying an urban ride between my bus stop and work! – Machkio
One down, 29 to go. Good excuse for an afternoon beer! – Allyson
Rode to work, back home for lunch with my wife and six month old, back to work, across town for a meeting then home for a family ride before dinner. – Luke
Test rode a new bike. Hangman Valley just outside Spokane. – Bradley
Just 4.5 miles around the neighborhood, but some hills *just for fun*! We are out of shape. – Shirley
Day 3. Forgot a jacket on my ride to work and it looks like rain. It’s going to be a wet ride home. – Jessica
On the way home from work I am acutely aware of what’s for dinner all along the route! – Kevin
Is Twitter your style? We’re tweeting and retweeting about 30 Days of Biking as well. You can find a collection of tweets here, but here’s an example:

If you’re an IGer, you can share with us on Instagram. Tag your images with #wabikes and #30daysofbiking so we can find them, and we may feature you in our gallery.
I set myself up with an extra challenge for greater accountability/chance to fail publicly with the commitment to write a blog post every with one word and one picture that somehow describe my biking that day.

Day 4: Racing http://wabikes.org/2014/04/04/30-days-biking-day-four-racing/
If you had to pick one word to describe your last bike ride, what would it be?
I joined 30 days of biking, not realizing it was a WA state deal. I’m still gonna honor my pledge, even though I’m far away in MN.
Linda: 30 Days of Biking is much bigger than Washington! We chose to create our own buzz around it with a Facebook event page and Tweets. You are absolutely welcome in our community, but you can also check the 30 Days of Biking FB page for broader action: https://www.facebook.com/30daysofbiking.
