Bicycle Commuter Profile: Eric Welborn

Bicycle Commuter Profile

Name: Eric Welborn
Location: Fort Worth, TX
Started bike commuting: 2010
Commute distance (one way): 15.5 miles

Describe your commute: A few miles of MUPs, some neighborhood streets, some industrial areas and a few sections of 4 lane roads. The route back has an option of using the train to cut the return short by about 8 miles if I’m running late or need to get home fast. None of it is busy at 4am!

Describe your bike and accessories: 2010 Windsor Tourist (rebranded Fuji Touring), shimano bar end shifters, Brooks B17 saddle (honey), nitto technomic stem, VO rando bars, axiom streamliner rear rack, Novatech dynamo hub from VO, planet bike fenders, some lights and to top it all off a Japanese brass bell.

What bit of advice would you like to share with new bike commuters?: I just started commuting so I don’t have much advice to give. I guess the only thing I could say is to stop talking/thinking about it and just do it!
