May is National Bike Month, and Bike to Work Week begins May 17 in Sitka. Cathie Healey is our local spokesperson. She's been a bike commuter all over the world, in her work for the Peace Corps (and now Americorps). Doug Osborne is with the Sitka Cycling Club (formerly the Sitka Bike Friendly Community Coalition).

She joins coalition member Bill Foster to talk about "Bike to Work Week" and the "Ride of Silence" (6:30 p.m. Wednesday, May 16, beginning at Crescent Harbor shelter) to honor those who have died cycling, and the "Sitka Community Bike Ride" (10:30 a.m. May 26, Totem Square, ride begins at 11).
