Why do you bike?
I love to bike for transportation. If I’m going somewhere, biking is my mode choice. It’s fun, fast, (relatively) stress free, punctual and keeps me in shape and feeling young. It is also a great way to stay in touch with the City, because you see what is going on around you. I love living in a city where the distances are short enough to get where I want to go by bicycle.
Which Vespertine item keeps you shining?
I just purchased a Reflective Riding Shell and am looking forward to springtime when I can use it everyday. It fits in with my theory that drivers will not hit you if they see you. Being bright and being seen is really important when you’re getting around on a bicycle.
There has to be more you want to tell us! Any awkward biking moments? Bike stories/jokes?
Another report was just published about how corrosive commuting is and how it is the worst part of the day for your average “Joe”- for me it’s the opposite. I would like my bike commute to be longer. It is the highlight of my day. If more people got out of their cars… they would feel the same and be much happier.
