Indianapolis Mayor Greg Ballard at 2010 Bike to Work DayHundreds of bicycle commuters converged on Monument Circle Friday morning for the 2010 Indianapolis Bike to Work Day.  After a forecast that threatened "paddle" to work, riders woke to grey, but dry skies.  Bicycle Indiana coordinated 11 starting points, with ride leaders, around the city to converge on Monument Circle.  At the Circle, volunteers from IndyCog coordinated free all-day bicycle parking.  Whole Foods provided riders free breakfast fare of bagels, fruit, juice and coffee.  Other sponsoring groups included INDot, Central Indiana Commuter Services, and the Indianapolis City Office of Sustainability (SustaINDY).  A complete list of sponsoring agencies and organizations is available on the Bicycle Indiana website.  

Among the riders were Indianapolis Mayor Greg Ballard, who greeted many of the commuters and read the city’s Bike To Work Day proclamation while on the Circle.  

Many team efforts were also visible including riders from Lilly and Monarch Beverage.
