Public Service Announcement: May is Bike to Work Month

The Bike Fleet
\\\\\ UPDATE the mystery bike match game has been solved. Deb got them all right on this comment. /////

Howdy y’all, Dartanyon here. We normally don’t post much on the weekend, but I wanted to take a moment for an off-topic Sunday morning Public Service Announcement. May is bike to work [and school] month.  Around the studio we’re environmentally conscious, and have turned BTWM into sorta a big deal.  We join in on the ride challenge put on by our local bike club, and get a little competitive when it comes to who can rack up the most miles. 

Consider this little PSA post my personal invitation to you, to hop on a bike an go for a ride.  You don’t need to commit to riding to work everyday in May [although that would be awesome].  You could just ride on National Bike to Work day on the 20th of May, or whatever works for you.

I got a laugh from our April Fools Day post where we all had switched out face parts. So in this spirit, I’ve whipped up a little “match game”, but this time it’s going to be a game of Match-The-Bike-To-The-Rider.  So, to see portraits of our lovely commuter steeds and match ‘em to their riders, hit ‘continue reading’ below…

When I prepped this post only 7 of us had ridden our whips in so Norton and Megan missed out…)
So, for our crew, that leaves:

  1. Chase
  2. Dartanyon
  3. Scott
  4. Jerard
  5. Erik
  6. Mara [she's new, say hi]
  7. Kate

Match those riders with these steeds:

1980 Trek 710

1980 Trek 710

2001 K2 Team ZED

2001 K2 Team ZED

2010 Trek XO2

2010 Trek XO2

1975 Bianchi Pista

2007 Scott CR1

2007 Scott CR1

1998 Cannondale Volvo Team CAAD3

1998 Cannondale Volvo Team CAAD3

1999 Rodriguez Stellar

1999 Rodriguez Stellar

If anyone matches the riders to their bikes, I’ll try to talk the bossman out of a signed book or something. We’ll track you down. Good luck with your guess and enjoy biking to work starting Monday. It’s good for you and good for the world.

[Lastly, if you're a bike nerd too, let's take this offline. Hit me up, I'm @dartanyon. on Twitter]

    I reckon the 2007 Scott CR1 is Chase’s bike.

    • Andrew MacDonald May 1, 2011 at 9:07 am #

      Although the 2007 Scott CR1 could be… Scott’s bike. Maybe he bought it because it matched his name? LOL

  2. Paul May 1, 2011 at 9:08 am #

    I think it would be awesomely hilarious is Scott rides a Scott.

  3. Spencer May 1, 2011 at 9:10 am #

    2010 Trek XO2 for Chase’s :p

  4. Scott May 1, 2011 at 9:17 am #

    I”m guessing the Bianchi is Eric’s, Chase rides the XO2, Dartanyon on the Old 80′s Trek, The Rodgriguez looks like 650′s so I’m guessing it’s someone smaller who likes to tour…maybe Mara? Scott is on the Scott, maybe Jerrard on the K2, Kate on the Cannondale. Any of those right?

    • Dartanyon May 1, 2011 at 10:07 am #

      You’ve got 1 right! Nice moves. I’m not going to tell you which one yet …

  5. Chris Gibson May 1, 2011 at 9:18 am #

    2010 Trek XO2 – Chase

    2007 Scott CR1 – Scott (Oh the hilarity!)

    1998 Cannondale Volvo Team CAAD3 – Dartanyon

    1980 Trek 710 – Kate

    thats all I’ve got tbh!

  6. DanielKPhoto May 1, 2011 at 9:19 am #

    I’m from Amsterdam, so I cycle to school every day and much more than that :-) hi Mara :)

  7. Scott May 1, 2011 at 9:19 am #

    ALthough the K2 is heavily loaded, it looks like a small frame possibly one of the women…

  8. Christian May 1, 2011 at 9:30 am #

    That’s cool! :-)
    I’d guess:

    Chase – Trek XO2, sporty
    Dartanyon – K2, space for lots of equipment
    Scott – Scott (of course!)
    Jerard – Cannondale
    Erik – Bianchi
    Hi Mara! – Trek 710
    Kate – Rodriguez

  9. Scott Poborsa May 1, 2011 at 9:31 am #

    1980 Trek: Gerrard
    2001 K2: Mara (p.s. Hi Mara :) )
    2010 Trek: Chase
    1975 Bianchi: Erik
    2007 Scott: Scott
    1998 Cannondale: Dartanyon
    1999 Rodriguez: Kate

  10. Chase Jarvis May 1, 2011 at 9:32 am #

    Here’s a hint: the single-speed ’75 celeste bianchi ‘pista’ is mine.

    • Dartanyon May 1, 2011 at 10:09 am #

      Isn’t a little early for hints ;-)

    • Can May 1, 2011 at 11:32 am #

      So Chase got the Bianchi as we know now. Kate is on the K2, I think she’s the one carrying the luggage ;) I think Mara (hello, would love to hear/read from you (; ) is on the Rodriguez. Dartanyon rides Cannondale and Scott has the older TREK. So what about Jerard and and Erik…Jerard maybe likes the SCOTT (does that mean that he likes Scott too? We’ll maybe find out in another trivia… :-D ) and Erik prefers the new TREK?

    • PocoArtist May 1, 2011 at 7:29 pm #

      Free wheeling or fixed gear setup !!??

      Inquiring minds want to know ;~))

  11. Clifton Roberts May 1, 2011 at 9:47 am #

    I have got to say those are some respectable bikes. Each is sweet in its own style!

    1980 Trek- Jerard
    2007 Scott- Erik

    1998 Cannondale- Kate

    • Dartanyon May 1, 2011 at 10:10 am #

      2 right! Although 1 Chase gave the answer to, but still a valiant effort.

  12. Clifton Roberts May 1, 2011 at 9:48 am #

    I wish I would’ve read some comments first…

  14. Koen May 1, 2011 at 10:00 am #

    Woah, everytime I see one of those Bianchi fixies/singlespeeds my jaw just drops. Gotta build one of those one day. It’s just 100% tasteful. No. Make that 200%.

    P.S. Hi there Mara!

    2010 Trek XO2 – Jerard
    2007 Scott CR1 – Eric

    Whats my score? :-P

  28. Dartanyon May 1, 2011 at 2:50 pm #

    So from what I can tell FIVE of the correct combinations are made in the above comments. First person to nail them all will get something special from the bossman.

  29. Deb May 1, 2011 at 4:37 pm #

    1975 Bianchi Pista – Chase
    2001 K2 Team ZED – Kate
    1999 Rodriguez Stellar – Mara
    1980 Trek 710 – Erik
    2010 Trek XO2 – Dartanyon
    2007 Scott CR1 – Jerard
    1998 Cannondale Volvo Team CAAD3 – Scott

    What distances do you ride? I already bike commute 5 days/week (~135 miles/week) but hopefully I’ll start adding in grocery shopping trips, other errands… (Surly LHT for me.) Love that so many in your office bike commute!

    • Dartanyon May 1, 2011 at 10:31 pm #

      Deb, combined with us all riding we are about 85-90 miles a day. My tip is the longest at around 11, followed by Scott’s and then Erik’s, Mara is up there too. Kate, Chase and Jerard are all pretty close. On the plus side… YOU HAVE THEM ALL RIGHT! I’ll hit you up tomorrow morning for your details and get you out something snazy.

      • Deb May 2, 2011 at 5:29 pm #

        Wow! I can’t believe I got them all right!! Awesome. :)

  30. Sherry Fagan May 1, 2011 at 4:51 pm #

    E. Erik = 2010 Trek XO2

    G. Kate = 1975 Bianchi Pista

    Hope you all have fun regardless of who clocks the most miles…. Riding bikes is FUNNNN! :)

    Kate: K2
    Scott: Tek XO2

    Erik: Canondale
    Jerard: Scott
    Mara: Rodriguez

  35. julesberry May 1, 2011 at 6:41 pm #

    If Dartanyon is a “bike nerd” then the 1975 Bianchi Pista fixed gear must be his.

    What is weird though is that you all seem to be about the same height… does Chase not employ people taller than him? ;-)

  36. Rogelio Valenzuela May 1, 2011 at 7:10 pm #

    Chase – 1975 Bianchi Pista

    Deb, actually got it all right at 4:37PM on this comment here. Thanks for playing everyone, and feel free to keep the bike questions [or any others for that matter] coming.

  39. Adam May 1, 2011 at 10:47 pm #

    Fun post! Who ever rides the classic Trek, you have the coolest bike of the bunch, IMHO.

    Those are some awesome bikes. Awesome stuff.

  42. KenL May 3, 2011 at 4:46 am #

    I love the Bianchi Pista – awesome tastes :) (I have a newer one, unfortunately in chrome and not the Celeste Green). Sweet!!!!

  43. Peter May 3, 2011 at 9:57 am #

    Chase was easy, but I reckoned you to be the scott rider. I take the bike to work any day, rain, sun or wind. It is also only 4k so it is an easy trip. And well when you have dutch blood you’re born to ride a bike.

  44. Mathieu Wauters May 3, 2011 at 10:52 am #

    Those bikes look pretty decent! Glad to see you are all participating in the bike to work month. As I go to work by bike, I got nuttin’ special to do in May. ;-)

  45. Carson Blume May 3, 2011 at 1:24 pm #

    Thank you for riding to work crew!

  46. Jon May 4, 2011 at 2:15 am #

    I missed this quiz, but how could anyone not have thought that Chase rides a fixie? :-)

  47. Leah D. May 13, 2011 at 9:33 am #

    You guys should do a little mixy matchy gear swap. How sweet would that leather (brooks?) seat look on the Pista?!?

  48. Kenny Mac May 24, 2011 at 1:32 pm #

    I’d love to bike to work but it’s like 33 miles each way and it rains here.
    May should be BACK to work month in my office.

  49. Shay Oguinn January 24, 2012 at 9:54 am #

    I would like to show some thanks to you just for rescuing me from this particular trouble. After scouting through the internet and getting tips which were not beneficial, I believed my entire life was over. Existing without the presence of strategies to the issues you have resolved by way of your main website is a serious case, as well as those that would have badly damaged my career if I had not encountered your site. That mastery and kindness in dealing with every part was precious. I am not sure what I would have done if I hadn’t discovered such a step like this. I’m able to at this moment relish my future. Thanks a lot so much for the expert and sensible help. I won’t hesitate to refer your web site to anybody who desires guidelines on this issue.

    A highly effective reveal, I quickly offered this onto a colleague who was accomplishing somewhat evaluation on this. And he the reality is bought me breakfast due to the fact I identified it for him.. smile. So allow me reword that: Thnx for the treat! But yeah Thnkx for shelling out the time to debate this, I sense strongly about it and really like reading through extra on this topic. If likely, as you turn out being expertise, would you head updating your blog with much more particulars? It can be hugely useful for me. Substantial thumb up for this weblog submit!

  56. religion March 31, 2013 at 2:56 am #

    The following time I discover a weblog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as a good deal as this one particular. I necessarily mean, I do know it had been my selection to find out, but I in fact thought youd have a single issue fascinating to say. All I listen to is usually a bunch of whining about something that you may repair really should you werent as well hectic seeking consideration.
