Since today is the first day of Bike to Work Week (May16-20), we thought it was the perfect time to start a series of Employee Profiles about a few 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!
What do you do at Performance?
Vice President of Direct Marketing.
How often do you ride to work?
Usually 2-3 days a week.
How far do you ride?
9 miles each way.
What bike do you ride?
Why do you commute by bike/what’s your favorite part of commuting by bike?
I ride for fitness, to do my part for the environment, and for the gas savings!
Any advice for someone who’s thinking about commuting by bike?
Take a trial run on a weekend to make sure that you’re comfortable with the route and to see how long it takes you to ride. Then start one day a week and build up to riding one more day, and then another, and then another…. Also, plan ahead to make your commute easier – bring in clothing/food on “off” days when you aren’t riding to work.
