In almost impossible timing, the long-forecasted rain actually arrived exactly during the morning of Bike to Work Day. But representatives from the University of La Verne, and the La Verne Bicycle Coalition bravely set up the pit stop regardless. And in a demonstration of “build and they will come”, they received a small number of commuters braving the rain. Some passing through, some working in the city, and some working at the university. While Bike to Work Day is intended to encourage people to try commuting by bike, the 2019 version highlighted those who are truly committed.
