I was happy to see several positive news stories in the last few days about those of us who commute by bike. Here are a couple quick reads:
A Hartford journalist goes on a ride-along. According to the article, we are “part of a national movement.” Bike commuters are also refered to as “Pioneers” who “must make sacrifices.” Well, that is what he thought before he got started…
This AM New York article about “Extreme Commuter” Julia Hecker who, gasp, rides a bike. My favorite quote:
“Julia attributes her shapely figure to all the exercise she gets commuting. ‘My colleagues at work wonder how I can eat so much. I guess it’s because I ride the bike. They think I should weigh a gazillion pounds.'”
Nice article with an accompanying slide show and video. Enjoy.
