Who’s the newest bike commuter in Denver?
As of this week, there’s one more bike commuter on the streets of Denver: It’s my friend, Julie!
I’m so happy for Julie, and I’m proud of her for making the switch from car commuting to bike commuting. How did she do it, you ask?
First, Julie made two smart choices that allowed for a car-lite existence:
- She moved to an apartment building in the Wash Park neighborhood, just a few blocks from the Cherry Creek Trail bike path (not to mention a whole lot of other cool stuff within biking and walking distance).
- She asked for a bike for Christmas.
- Her sister came through with a super-cute aqua-colored cruiser with plaid accents for Christmas.
- Her office moved from Colorado Boulevard to a hip, downtown office on Writer’s Square, right near the bike path.
Now, each day Julie pedals up to the Cherry Creek Trail, takes a pleasant two-mile ride, and exits the bike path just two blocks from her office.
I hope you’ll join me in congratulating Julie on becoming a bike commuter!
P.S. Julie blogs too!
