I’ve written a fair amount on this blog about cycling and making the use of bikes easier in the Fresno and Clovis area. However, I’ve never really been able to bike to work, due to distance. That is, I frequently have used my bike to run errands, attend events and so forth, but not for commuting.
Mind you, commuting isn’t that big a deal. There seems to be some inordinate focus on how people commute, but some studies have show that commuting makes up only 25% of trips. Makes sense if you do your own math. Commuting is a simple back and forth, but those shopping trips, runs to the grocer, visits to the cinema, dinners with family and friends, trips to the park and so on and so forth….well, most of the time we spend on the road it’s because we’re going somewhere other than work.
