I do my best thinking and problem solving on the bicycle.

I was once followed by a couple of lost puppies. Fortunately, I was able to locate the owner.

Do you think you save money by commuting this way?


How does your company help accommodate your commute option? (ex: if you’re a biker, are there adequate bike racks? If a bus rider, does your company offer a free bus pass?)

Pacific Lutheran University allows be to store my bicycle indoors and they have lots of convenient bike racks around campus.

What would you say to your fellow employees to inspire them to try using a commute option other than driving alone in their car?

Biking to work is a great way to relax and get a little exercise. I have been commuting by bicycle, when weather permits, since 1989 and I love it!
