I Am A Teacher, And I Ride

Here is another great story in our And I Ride campaign. We are seeking to put a face on cycling in support of a legislative campaign that we are working on this year. You can read the rest of these great stories here.

We are still accepting entries, so be sure to read below to find out how to send in your story.

Our next story comes from Sarah.

Where I Ride: Boston and wherever on holidays.
How Often I Ride: Daily except in snow and ice.

My Story:
The exhilaration, and sheer efficiency, of biking is so satisfying. I love the freedom to explore new routes and byways on my daily commute to work on city streets, without being tied to transit routes or a time frame that makes wandering along a new route impractical. The little flecks of snow that sometimes hit my face on a late ride home are a bonus – I can feel and smell the weather and air, and they don’t feel cold because the exercising has me glowing.

I now try to take my bike on holiday travel, too. I flew with it to Las Vegas (in December – too hot in summer) and rode the “strip” and into the countryside, and was able to explore lots of the town. My photo here was taken during a visit to Toronto last summer, riding out on a bike path on the Leslie Spit into the Toronto Harbor – I would probably not have walked out the miles out there, but the bike made many sights of the city accessible, and I could also enjoy the streets and scenes biking from one point to the next.

Thanks Sarah!
