Bike Friday's (above) are a great excuse to ride your bike to Boston's City Hall Plaza and eat. And there's plenty to eat.

Today's food included burritos and coffee from Boloco, bagels, Larabar energy bars, dark chocolate for athletes from Perfect Fuel (full disclosure, they sponsor my bike team), Izze Sparkling Juice, and "healthy" candy from Unreal. I sampled it all; and why not? Like many of the other Friday bikers, I burned a lot of calories riding to work in the rain.

There's more than just food. Wheelworks Bicycle Stores set up their mobile bike shop for minor tune-ups and fixes.

Organized by the City of Boston, Bike Fridays happen on the last Friday of the month (July 19 and Aug. 30) between 7-9 a.m., and they're basically an early morning party for Boston bike commuters.
