To class...

Pass the bar to go to class -- or, if you're a law student, maybe the other way around.

In any case, you can always stop on the way home.

Good Morning

The ride to work is such a nice way to start your day.

A "step-through" frame makes it simpler to get on and off the bike, particularly in business attire. These frames are traditional for delivery and messenger bikes, and they're just as nice on a commuter bike.

A Night Out

Our friends Mimi and George like to ride their bikes to dinner.

Here they are, out for a casual evening at Hunter-Gatherer, decompressing from a hectic work week.

With the bike rack right out front, they get rock-star parking.

Columbia Spring

Lights! Fenders! Basket! Action!

On a sunny afternoon like this, on a bike made for pleasant riding, you're already where you want to be long before you get where you're going.

Beautiful Monday

It's finally warming up around here, so we don't have to bundle up for the ride to work. Don't get me wrong, the morning ride in the chill air hasn't been so bad. But glorious days like today... the daily commute becomes it's own pleasure.

Here's Kelsey riding her bike to work in the sunshine. Nice Bike. Comfortable, upright position. A basket for her things. Fenders and chain-guard to keep road stuff and bike stuff where it belongs.

...even Mondays can be beautiful.

Everyday Commuter

This is Kyle. Kyle rides his bike to work every day.

I have spent an unreasonable amount of time fussing over exactly what commuter clothes and accessories I need to be a bike commuter.

Kyle: not so much. He did get a decent bike rack and bags so he could carry his suit to work with him rather than wearing it on the way. That arranged, he just started riding his bike to work. Every work-day. Rain or shine (or snow). This approach seems to work really well.

He speaks to people he happens to pass on the way (if they're not behind car glass). He feels good. Commuting on a bike makes him happy -- note the smile on his face. He didn't have to wait till he'd driven home to play in the snow.
