Paul Dorn, Bike CommuterSince May is Bike Month and next Friday is Bike to Work Day, I thought a bike commuting post was in order. EcoVelo is a bike blog that I check on a regular basis: "This site is the public expression of our personal commitment to reduce our impact on the environment by employing bicycles as our primary mode of transport."
A recent post features information about Paul Dorn, a bike commuter, author of The Bike to Work Guide: What You Need to Know to Save Gas, Go Green, Get Fit, and creator of a website devoted to bike commuting. There's also a link to a recent interview with Paul.
Bike to Work Day is a great time to celebrate bike commuting and for first time bike commuters to learn that it's an inexpensive, non-polluting, and (usually) fun way to get to work. Be sure to register for your local pit stop at WABA. This year, if you are multimodal and take your bike on the bus as part of your commute, you ride for free.
