Gary Mar takes commuter challenge!

On his bike Friday morning, Provincial Tory leadership candidate Gary Mar, second from right, beat everybody else in a commuter race, including, left to right, Sarah Covey on transit, Dana Eason in a vehicle, Bike to Work Day founder Lonny Balbi who was also on a bike, and Julie Checknita on transit.

While you were watching the royal wedding this morning (by “watching” I mean “sleeping”), provincial Tory leadership candidate Gary Mar mounted a bike and bested a driver and transit rider in the annual downtown commuter race, an event that’s part of the May 6 Bike to Work Day.

From the Calgary Herald’s “Pedal Magazine” blog. It’d sure be nice if the Edmonton Journal did something similar.
