I’m giving a free clinic this Wednesday night at the West Seattle Cycle U at 6:30pm: How to bike commute in Seattle. Free tea and coffee as well, finshing at 7:15pm, 3418 Harbor Ave SW, free parking as always across the street.
I love riding my bike in traffic (this is Craig talking), today on my commute through downtown I felt like I was a motocycle in Hong Kong in rush hour traffic, but it was a Sunday, and I was just riding to the West Seattle store from the Sand Point store. I arrived at work feeling 20 times better than when I had started, energized, calm and flush with good circulation. I have been a bike commuter since I moved to Colorado to start racing in 1987, and there are few things in life that make more sense than riding your bike to work. Here are the key benefits:
1. Get in better shape
2. No waiting in traffic or long lines of cars, much less frustration
3. $ No gas and the repair bills are 1/20th of a car
