Are you new to biking or has this activity been a part of your life forever?
I’m new to it! I’ve been riding since November
What motivates you to get out on your bike?
As I’ve built up my fitness, I now bike for almost all my errands and rarely use my car. I biked to work, which is why I bought a bike, since I live < 1 mile from my office. Now I bike everywhere! Anything less than 10 miles away, I’ll generally bike if it’s daytime and not raining.
Do you participate in organized group rides?
I never have, but I want to!
What does biking mean to you?
Biking has a big economic impact on my life. I feel like I save a lot of money by not using my car, and I think there are definitely economic benefits to better long term health! I enjoy it immensely and I’ve enjoyed planning my bike rides around completing errands.
What is the next thing you want to do with your bike?
I am likely moving to Israel, so my fitness goal is to bike from the Mediterranean to the dead sea in one day. I would like to practice for this by biking to the state line and back!
