I Am A School Headmaster, 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 Scott.


Where I Ride: Home in Roslindale to Work in Hyde Park
How Often I Ride: 3-4 times a week.

My Story:

In 2004, I founded a small public school dedicated to preparing students to succeed in college and to grow ethically. I spend long days inside the school building, and I love the exercise and the time outside, commuting on my bike. No email and no cell phone for those 40 minutes a day. As an educator and as a father, it’s important to me to leave the planet as good as I found it, and I want to keep my carbon footprint to a minimum.

On hot days, I need to ride slow to keep from sweating inside my suit, and I admit I get some funny looks occasionally from the 15-year-olds I teach. But as long as I can still beat each of them in a footrace, the snickers will remain at a minimum.

Thanks Scott!
