Protect Your Bike

Today is National Bike to Work Day. Don’t forget your lock. Some employers provide covered bike parking but you may need to leave your ride in the open and you’ll want a lock even in Lewiston. I don’t worry much about locking my bike here if I’m just going in for a few minutes but for all day I’d have a good lock.
