I Am An Economist, And I Ride

Here is another great story from 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 Katherine.

Where I Ride: To and from work in downtown Boston on weekdays, and around Massachusetts on weekends
How Often I Ride: At least twice a week

My Story:

I feel so lucky to be able to commute by bike at least a few days a week. I live in Cambridge, and work at a consumer advocacy organization in downtown Boston, so the majority of my commute is along the Charles River bike path. On my way to work, I get to watch the morning sun reflect on Boston’s skyline and the college crews racing down the river. On my way home, I bike past dozens of sailboats gracing the Charles.

And on weekends, I take advantage of my bike to get out and see my beautiful state. I ride to the beach, or along the Minuteman bike path to historic Walden Pond.

I’ve never had a driver’s license – going places by bike makes me feel more connected to my community, helps me reduce my carbon footprint, and keeps me healthy and fit.

Thanks Katherine!
