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

1998 Cannondale Volvo Team CAAD3

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 see, because you think something is “Tacky” everyone else should agree. Personally, I find it disgusting when someone smells up the airplane with a big bag of food from McDonald’s, what if EVERYONE did that?. How about girls with an ugly lower back tattoo (Tramp Stamp), guess we should ban them too, after all I find that tacky. Hell, lets ban everything, everyone finds tacky, Kumbaya! There are more harmful odors and emissions coming from an airplane galley oven, than one of these e-cigarettes. Lets ban cooking food.

Under no circumstances read the original but I loved watching Chris Economaki on ABC. Racing will not be the same without him.

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.

Leah D. says:

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

Jon says:

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

Carson Blume says:

Thank you for riding to work crew!

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.

KenL says:

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

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? ;-)

Tom Varden says:

Chase: Bianci
Kate: K2

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 says:

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 says:

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

Dartanyon says:

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.

Koen says:

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%.

Tom Varden says:

1980 Trek 710 – Gerrard

1975 Bianchi Pista – Chase
2007 Scott CR1 – Scott
1998 Cannondale Volvo Team CAAD3 – Kate
1999 Rodriguez Stellar – Mara (Hi)

Thanks for everything!

I wish I would’ve read some comments first…

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

1975 Bianchi- Chase
2001 K2- Dartanyon
2010 Trek- Scott
1980 Trek- Jerard
2007 Scott- Erik
1999 Rodriguez- Mara
1998 Cannondale- Kate

Dartanyon says:

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

Chase Jarvis says:

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

Dartanyon says:

Isn’t a little early for hints ;-)

Can says:

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 says:

Free wheeling or fixed gear setup !!??

Inquiring minds want to know ;~))

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

Christian says:

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

Scott says:

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

Dartanyon says:

Interesting observation … ;-)

DanielKPhoto says:

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

Chris Gibson says:

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!

Scott says:

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 says:

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

Spencer says:

2010 Trek XO2 for Chase’s :p

Paul says:

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

Andrew MacDonald says:

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

Andrew MacDonald says:

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