Comments on: Bike Commuting Provides an Alternative to the Morning Grind The EPA Blog Fri, 31 Jul 2015 15:03:35 +0000 hourly 1 By: John Tue, 23 Aug 2011 14:30:50 +0000 It’s so encouraging to see the growing ranks of bikers on New York streets. Every year I see more and more enjoying the same benefits you’re writing about — exercise, saving money and enhancing interaction with the city. Why cram into an underground train when so much of the city is accessible by bike? I ride between Chinatown and midtown daily and have found it’s both a cheaper and happier way to get around compared to the subway, especially on those sweltering summer days. Thanks for the post, Walter, and I hope you talk up the bike with any interested commuters. They might find they enjoy it as much as you do!
