Here’s our last Bike to Work Week Employee Profile about one of the many commuters who ride to work here at Performance HQ. They ride different bikes and different routes, but they’ve all got great advice on how to make your commute easier and more fun!
Tony DeRubeis .
What do you do at Performance?
Spin Doctor Pro Bike Build Coordinator.
How often do you ride to work?
1-2 times per week.
How far do you ride?
42 miles round trip.
What bike do you ride?
I ride a Scattante XRL cross frame with a Frankenbike parts kit.
Why do you commute by bike/what’s your favorite part of commuting by bike?
It’s a good workout, plus it’s more enjoyable than driving, it saves money and it’s better for the environment!
Any advice for someone who’s thinking about commuting by bike?
Any distance commuting by bike is better than driving – driving half of your commute and biking half is better than driving the whole thing. And commuting by bike is like stealing time – if your 30 minute drive takes 60 minutes to ride, you get a 60 minute workout while only taking 30 minutes out of your day.
