STORY AND PHOTO BY KAREN BOSSICK

The temperature’s expected to climb into the mid-60s with sunny skies. April snowstorms have given way to May flowers—or, at least, a few shoots of fresh green grass. And the voles are scampering around the Wood River Trail trying to avoid the crush of bicycles rolling down the path.

There’s absolutely no reason not to bike—or roller skate or scooter--to work or school on Wednesday, May 17.

Mountain Rides has organized its annual event designed to encourage adults and youth to leave cars at home from 6:30 to 9 a.m. Wednesday May 17.

Representatives of 22 organizations and businesses will set up aid stations along the path from the Wood River YMCA at the north end of the bike path to Coffee Corner at Cedar St. in Bellevue.

They’ll be giving out swag and treats, such as hot cocoa and—historically, in the case of Higher Ground—breakfast burritos.

And The Hailey Public Library and The Community Library are partnering with the Blaine County Recreation District to bring yet another StoryWalk to the Wood River Trail. This StoryWalk will feature the bilingual children’s books “Moon Rope” (“Un lazo a la luna”) and “Cuckoo” (“Cucu) by Lois Ehlert.

Pages from “Moon Rope” will be set up along the trail between Fox Acres Road and Myrtle Street in Hailey. And pages of “Cuckoo” will be posted between 6th Street and Wood River Drive in Ketchum from Wednesday through Sunday, May 21.

Those taking part in this year’s Bike to Work include The Presbyterian Church of the Big Wood, ERC, The Y, Wild Rye, Limelight Ketchum, Elephant’s Perch, St. Luke’s, PK’s, St. Luke’s, Sun Valley Resort, Sawtooth Botanical Garden, Sturtevants, Zenergy, Climate Action Coalition, The Sage School, Senior Connection, Rocky Mountain Hardware, Coffee Corner, Kiwanis Club, Higher Ground, BCRD and Mountain Rides.
