“I absolutely LOVE my commute. Riding my bike in the morning is wonderful. It’s just far enough to work up a light sweat and then I get on the bus where I am able to relax and read my book. I don’t worry about the traffic and there have been many times that I’ve looked up from my book surprised that we’re already at my stop. I get to work refreshed and relaxed. In the evenings, I either ride to BART, or if I’m just not in the mood or it’s too dark, I can put my bike on the rack of four different local bus routes to get home from BART.” – Neal McCarthy
