Stuart Gimber’s Photo Contest Entry

I’m new to bike commuting. Why did I wait so long?

Last Summer I reluctantly agreed to house-sit for my In-laws. I would be away from the comforts of our own home but I strapped my bike on my roof-rack for insurance. I mapped out a bike route to work. So exhilarating and freeing!

Since returning to our home, I now commute 14 miles daily. It’s been only a little bit of work and a lot of fun getting up to this distance.

As Tolstoy said: “Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself.”

My love of bikes and bike-riding has awakened the adventurer and nature lover in me. I really enjoy discovering new things to do on bikes with our family.

Towing our kids while they skimboard along the beach is just the latest.
