A goal is a dream with a deadline, they say, and I’ve now more fully defined mine for National Bike Month in May (and am, in fact, knee-deep into it already).
Here’s where I’m at.
- Finish creating TikToks to align with my proprietary Pedal Power with Pattie basic bike skills class for women and teen girls, already available in text and downloadable PDF form.
- Upload all TikToks to YouTube and add links to existing course.
- Publish the course’s 22 micro-lessons once each day starting March 4 (march forth!), and amplify across multiple social media channels (including in found outdoor space and as guerrilla art). Promote again for 22 days in April.
- Start booking dates during National Bike Month to answer questions/chat with book clubs who are reading Traveling at the Speed of Bike. (Here’s a free discussion guide and an audio selection from Chapter 2: The Bike in the Attic. Contact me here to schedule.)
- Concurrently, continue all additional Metro Atlanta Bicycle Mayor work (see 3-month Executive Summary here) as well as identify specific things people can do to involve their communities leading up to and during National Bike Month, such as create a Ride with the Mayor (even if it’s virtual this year). (See TikTok below about one mayor whose opinion changed after a Ride to Lunch with the Mayor event)
- “Name and fame” people and communities that are embracing National Bike Month 2021. If that’s you (or where you live, work, or go to school), contact me with details.
