I am a Machine Operator, And I Ride

Here’s a 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 bicyclist bios 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 Jesse.


Where I Ride: Chelsea, East Boston, Everett, Medford, Revere
How Often I Ride: Every day, all year

My Story:

I started riding again after more than twenty years because I rediscovered the joys of riding and the view, the challenges, and feel of getting things done via a self propelled device. I have two kinds of bicycles, one is a road bike I spend my sunny days on, and the others are mountain bikes. I ride where I haven’t been before in the city, or in the snow, rain, or extreme cold. I get shopping done with my cargo trailer. I get closer to nature, finding parks and reserves I didn’t know existed before.

I have also been trying to get the city I live in to change many of the dangerous storm grates along some of our most used streets. I use drive up banks and restaurants on my bike, I love finding new routes to favorite shopping areas. Twenty years ago I rode to Cape Cod from Boston. I would like to do that again someday.

Thanks Jesse!
