From Dana Hougland
I commute because when I am jumping curbs, racing cars and practicing track stands I feel 15 and not 55. Responsiblity lurks at either end, but for an hour I can be totally free.

From Ryan Elliot Moffat
I commute by bike simply because it saves me money, makes me happy and healthy, and I enjoy the look on peoples faces when they are stuck in traffic and I breeze by car(e)free.

From Mike Kauspedas
I commute because I can honestly get back home faster by bike than driving, so it's not just for the morning wake up ride. And its fun, keeps the weight off, good time for training, makes me feel good, and a myriad of other benefits I'm surely forgetting.
