Bike Commute Diaries: Will Drive for Bikes

16 May

I have another dirty little secret. The #1 reason I drive these days is to ride my bike. When I want to hit the trails on my mountain bike, I drive. When I meet my friends after work for a hilly road ramble, I drive. I don’t need my car to get to work, to shop, to visit the doctor, or catch a movie. But sometimes I need my car to ride my bike.


About the Bike Commute Diaries: In honor of National Bike Month, I’m sharing 31 short, sweet and surprising things I’ve discovered about bike commuting one for each day in May. Happy National Bike Month!

    I’ve felt the same way! Pulling into a parking lot full of other cyclists, unloading their bikes…

    Actually I don’t even need a car to ride my bike! I have a folding bike, and they’re great to literally walk or take buses/trains with your bikes inside a bag!
