Pastries for Bike to Work Day

Earlier this month, I volunteered on Bike to Work Day, handing out juice and pastries. I especially enjoyed visiting with a variety of riders. Our station was one of five set up around Burlington. Year round commuters, a guy on a tandem who just dropped his wife off at work, two ladies who worked nearby that were tickled to be treated, even a family who were traveling to school stopped for a snack.

When I spied my neighbor huffing up a hill. toting her youngest daughter in a trailer, I hailed them over for a visit. Her daughter drank juice, shook her head at the sweets, but silently accepted a package of gummy fruit snack that she clutched to her chest. However, I noticed her gaze fixated on the balloons tied to the table. When we broke down the set up later on, I snagged the balloons and delivered them to the girl. She was all smiles. Little did I know that it was her birthday the following day! 


  1. Sometimes it doesn't take much to make someones day, cool that you put the balloons to such good use.

  2. That's a great thing to do, we have ride to work day here, I might suggest this to a few people ...
