Tips from Women who Commute
May is National Bike Month and many cities have a Bike to Work Week or even promote it for a month. With its usually fair and moderate weather in many places in the country, it is a good time for many people to start using their bicycle to commute to work. Commuting to work is a great way to get in some exercise, have a chance to enjoy a little relaxing time to think as you ride, and a way to save money and help the environment at the same time. Yes, we are aware that the numbers of men who commute by bike often vastly outnumber the women who do. However, it isn’t as difficult as you might think.
We interviewed Bridget Stuchly and Emi Storheim who commute daily to work. Bridget has a relatively short commute, while Emi combines a train commute with her bike commute to make the 50 mile roundtrip do-able. They have adapted their bicycles for commuting and have figured out how to deal with changes in weather, toting necessites for work and performing the Wonder Woman routine in a bathroom without showers to transform from commuter into executive. Watch our video to get all their tips and advice.
