Bike Commute Diaries: Spare Our Air

The picture of the bike in the foreground, amidst traffic gridlock is just amazing. I just wish more people would consider bicycling as a valid form of transportation, and not just on a Spare the Air day.

One woman. Many bicycles.

When the thermometer rises toward triple digits and sends the ozone to the unhealthy levels, my crankiness rises accordingly. Officials kindly request that we all telecommute, bike, carpool or take transit to reduce car emissions. Before I bike commuted, I’d drive to work as usual and skip after work trips. Now I resent breathing bad air when I see people stacked up on the freeway, business as usual. Transit, bike or carpool, anyone?


About the Bike Commute Diaries: Launched in May 2012 for National Bike Month, this series explores the unexpected and surprising things I’ve learned about bicycling for transportation.
