Check out our new set “OSU Libraries Staff: Flickr Folks Ride!” — it’s our nod to the BTA Bike Commute Challenge…
Why? Many of the folks who work at the OSU Libraries bike to work, though we come at “commuting” with a slightly different bent… Some are committed throughout the rainy season (Larry Landis and Chris Petersen are foul weather riders), some ride loooong distances to reach their desk (Terry Reese rides many, many, many, many miles each day, all year), some only ride in the sun (okay, not really, this is Oregon after all), some cart boxes full of archival documents (that’s me)!
So when I read about the Bike Commute Challenge, a friendly competition to see who can get more people biking to work in September, I thought it might make a fun Flickr set to take pictures of all the biking folks that grace our stacks. And really, it’s easy, fun, and free, so we decided to give it a try! But, never one to miss an opportunity to show off our great archival collections, I thought I’d give it a try with a “Then & Now” twist… Enjoy!
