Ride To Work Day...in Sebastopol?

June 15th is the annual Ride to Work Day event where scooterists and motorcyclists everywhere are encouraged to ride to work, showing the great versatility and utility of our superior mode of transport.

http://www.ridetowork.org/

By some measure of good luck and strong intestinal fortitude I find myself to be in a position of some import in the west Sonoma County city of Sebastopol; I am serving as mayor this year. In light of my position, I have decided (as most likely the only Sonoma County mayor to be the owner of a Tiger, two Ducatis and a Z50) to recognize Ride to Work Day at the Tuesday, June 2, 2015 City Council meeting.

I think it would be great to fill the parking lot and the chambers with motorcyclists and thought I'd reach out to the ADV community for support. The meeting will start at 6:00 and the recognition for the event will occur in the first 15 minutes of the meeting, so there will be plenty of time to make it over to the Hopmonk Tavern or the Smokehouse BBQ for dinner (although I need to stay to take care of city business). The meetings are held at the Sebastopol Community Center Youth Annex, 425 Morris Street.

I know the Mendocino Rally (organized by Sonoma County inmate Mootsuno) was a big success with lots of Sonoma County riders attending and I'm hoping those riders will come out to support Ride to Work Day too.

But its sebastopol.....you are fighting an uphill sideways battle. Unless you're in a Prius or on a bicycle Im pretty sure the locals think you are just visiting. That part of the county is sooooooo weird; I'm surprised the police even carry guns.

Thanks for the suggestions on places to post.

Sebastopol does have its share of peculiar characters and unique opinions, but, as I've found, there are also a lot of the old guard and normal workin' folks who live here too. They just don't talk as loud or get as much press.

I am guilty as charged about the bicycle thing, but you'll not find a Prius or a Subaru anywhere near my garage.
