Comments on: Why I (Still) Ride a Bike http://blog.epa.gov/blog/2013/08/why-i-still-ride-a-bike/ The EPA Blog Thu, 02 Jul 2015 12:58:31 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.1 By: John Kelly http://blog.epa.gov/blog/2013/08/why-i-still-ride-a-bike/#comment-28187 Fri, 20 Sep 2013 18:24:01 +0000 http://blog.epa.gov/epaconnect/?p=327#comment-28187 There is a typo in this sentence: It is getting more expensive every year to own a car and that doesn’t include the 36 hours American’s were stuck in traffic last year. Great article! I can’t believe biking is on the uptick in Alaska!

I also bike2work everyday (you can follow me on Twitter @bikeeveryday) for the same reasons that you do, but not in the same order. My first reason is the environmental ones that you cite. As a fellow EPA employee, I believe that I need to “bike the talk” and achieve the mission of our Agency through my actions. Second, it is a built in exercise regimen that can not be avoided except by subjecting myself to crowded Metro rides or hours of sitting in traffic jams. Third, as you mention, the cost of bicycling is low in comparison to car ownership (which also includes fuel, maintenance, and insurance expenses).

I am happy to see that you are leading by example too. Keep on riding, and be safe.

I applaud Jared Blumenfeld for telling his story which will encourage more people to ride a bike whenever and wherever they can!
