Here’s another Employee Profile about one of the many commuters who ride to work here at Performance HQ, in honor of Bike to Work Week (May 16-20). They ride different bikes and different routes, but they’ve all got great advice on how to make your commute easier and more fun!
What do you do at Performance?
How often do you ride to work?
About once a week.
How far do you ride?
22 miles round trip.
What bike do you ride?
Scattante Five-Sixty frame, from 2008 I believe (this is a popular bike for commuters here, but for 2011 it’s called the X-570).
Why do you commute by bike/what’s your favorite part of commuting by bike?
I ride for several reasons: to get some additional riding in during my busy day, to save gas, and because it’s always a GREAT way to wake up in the morning. I love riding with lights during sunrise.
Any advice for someone who’s thinking about commuting by bike?
I recommend using at least 2 tail lights for additional safety.
