    If you need some incentive to volunteer, Legend Bicycle is announced:

    At this year's Bike to Work Day, Mayor Tavares announced three City-Sponsored "Cyclovias" to encourage people to come out for a day to reconnect with their street. Walk, run, dance, Zoomba, ride your bike. Whatever you do, don't drive a car or otherwise intimidate your neighbors on their street. Legend will be there. Come on by to map your world. The City needs volunteers to work a 2-hour shift. Sign up with Legend at [to cover a shift on June 30th] and get a $20 Legend gift card.

    Way to go Legend, what an awesome offer to make in order to help out a community centric event!
