Ride bicycle to BottleRock, and paint sharrows on Silverado Trail at Hagen Road. Do not text and drive. Give 3 feet clearance to pass a bicycle and slow down when driving with bicycle present. Don't do drugs and use bicycle lights in daytime. Take the bicycle out of the garage and donate it or get it fixed. Check out "Bike Party" and go for a night ride. Pick a route on Google Maps bicycle mode and see the neighborhood. Ride naked.

See you at BottleRock
