I’ve been a “biker” for a while now, but only in the sense that I would go on training rides over the weekend. I never really considered biking as a real means of transportation (i.e. anything beyond running small errands) until I started my most recent job. Now, I’m close enough to bike to work and get my blood pumping in the morning. It’s a great way to fit in a bit of exercise before the day starts.
Even if you can’t bike all the way to work in the morning, chances are that you can do at least a portion of your commute by bike. Lots of people bike to the train station or bus and then take it from there. If not…maybe you should consider moving to one of the eight bike friendliest cities in the world.
Okay, well maybe moving to a different city or country is a bit extreme, but it’s always fun to dream! Regardless, biking-whether it be to work or just for a little weekend fun-is a great way to get in some exercise and explore your city in a new way. Remember–Always wear your helmet!
