Photo Friday | National Bike Month

Happy Friday everyone! Are you just as relieved as me that the weekend is here?

In honor of National Bike Month, which kicked off on Tuesday, I've got a new article in this week's Times of Acadiana on a new bike rental option in the Lafayette area. The city does not have a large public bike share program, although the UL Lafayette campus has the Geaux Velo bike share.

However, BudBike, the new bike rental program, offers something different for riders - electric bicycles! These allow you to cruise a little more and enjoy the surrounding scenery, and can be rented by the day.

After I spoke to Mr. Sanford, the owner of BudBike, and wrote my article, I actually saw a few BudBikes parked downtown during Festival International last weekend. The rentals come with helmets and locks, so safety is a high priority.

My husband also noticed a BudBike renter during his commute one morning this week, and marveled at how well she was cruising using the electric assist. It looks like we might have to rent these bikes ourselves one day and go for a leisurely ride around town!

Check out BudBike's Facebook here.

If you're still doing some Mother's Day shopping, don't forget to check out my eco-friendly gift guide posted earlier this week.

Hope you all have a great weekend! I'm looking forward to treating myself a little bit with a mani-pedi, something I very rarely do.
