Where do you live and where do you work?
I live in the Proctor district and work downtown
How do you get there?
I’ve started riding on Fridays when the weather permits. It’s a great route down North 24th, Yakima and right through Wrights Park!
How does it all add up?
It is actually a little quicker riding my bike because I don’t have as many stop lights to wait at and I do free up one parking spot at work which helps as they are getting hard to find.
What’s in it for you?
Exercise, I always feel good when I’ve made it up the hills I traveled down when heading to work but I also enjoy my surroundings more when I ride.
Do you have any tips for people who may be trying these modes for the first time?
You have to give it a try. It’s getting easier every time I do it.
