Comments on: Bicycling in New York: room for improvement Global environmental challenges Wed, 16 Nov 2016 08:14:55 +0000 hourly 1 By: Patrick Metts Tue, 20 May 2008 11:48:34 +0000 I have recently begun to bike to work 3 days a week, mainly because of the price of gas and too I am an avid mountain biker. I have suggested to friends who live closer to thier workplace than I do that they should bike or even run to work and the main reason I hear as to why they don’t is they don’t have to ability to shower off once they get to their office. And in SC, biking to work in the middle of July almost requires you to shower off. My commute is 7.5 miles, however, I do have the luxury of a shower in my workplace. It makes you wonder how much longer until employers provide these facilites so to encourage their employees to bike/walk/run to work.

If foreign cities and their prices are any indicator of the rise of bikers and walkers in the USA, I’d say it’s likely to rise. I spoke with my sister-in-law, a tunnel expert living outside Birmingham, England recently, where petrol (gas) is approximately equivalent to $9.00 a liter. She walks to work. Rory McMullan–the British author of Biking to Work was raised in a car-free family in London; he bikes every where.(Read his blog: n/the-health-benefits-of-cycling-to-work .html). Author Sadie Kneidel lives in North Carolina, and she too has begun to bike to work. (Read Sadie’s blog: n/a-bike-beats-a-cars-gas-insurance-and- repair-prices.html )
