Name: Brian Hough
Location: Olathe, KS
Started bike commuting: 2 Years Ago
Commute distance (one way): 7.3 Miles
Describe your commute: Mostly sidewalks across the suburbs. Enjoy nice hills, passing ponds, a few farm fields and a local airport.
Describe your bike and accessories: Robin’s Egg Blue 2011 Surly Cross Check. Brooks B-17 Saddle. Velo Orange Handlebar bag, Axiom rain proof paniers. Seriously, best bike I have ever owned. Everyone should commute on a cyclocross bike. Fast and tough.
What bit of advice would you like to share with new bike commuters?: Rather than buying everything you think you need, just get on your bike with a back pack and go. You’ll figure out what things you need as you go and you can buy only what you need that way.
