This week is Bike To Work Week. This week, yours truly will be riding her bike to Howard Station and from the Downtown Station to the office [approximately 5.5 miles]. Last week, for encouragement, I turned to my friend, Scott. That is because, for Scott, every week is Bike To Work Week.
[ck] Scott, how long have you been commuting to work by bicycle?
[Scott] For the last four years, my primary methods of commuting are either by bus or bicycle.
[ck] How far do you commute?
[Scott] I commute about three miles each way.
[ck] What was the impetus for taking your bike to work?
[Scott] There were several motivating factors. Efficient exercise. Enjoyment. Believe it or not, it is often much faster; and, it allows my family to remain a one-car household.
[ck] So, I get the exercise. Talk to me about enjoyment.
[Scott] I really enjoy riding my bike. It makes me feel like a little kid riding to school.
