Faces of Fairfax - Susan Demsko
Sporting a lovely Bike Arlington
jersey, Susan Demsko of West Springfield took a break from her morning commute to work to talk to FABB about her reasons for biking.
Susan said that, in addition to biking to her job as a learning disabilities teacher at Lake Braddock Secondary School, she rides her bike to run errands and for exercise all around the DC Metro area. She enjoys biking for the exercise she gets and the attendant mental health benefits that come from riding. Susan is certain that riding keeps her “young and happy.”
Susan added that she also appreciates that biking rather than driving helps the environment and saves her family money by allowing them to avoid having to buy an additional car. She would like for Fairfax County to add more bike lanes to area roads to make biking safer and easier.
