We love bringing you stories of real-life clean commuters in metro Atlanta! Check out this story from David Pedrick, who bikes to his to work every day.
I live in Adair Park. Minus a couple railroad tracks, the ride into Midtown is fantastic. I biked to high school once to illustrate how easy it would be for others to bike as well. I lived 17 miles from school while most of my classmates lived within a mile. Since then, I have been biking to work every day to show that it’s a normal way to get to work.
I save lots of money on gasoline and parking fees. I fill my gas tank just once a month, and that includes an annual trip back to my family in Iowa. In addition to personal financial and health benefits, I really value the community that biking builds. Finally, the environmental benefits of biking to work are incredible. Driving a vehicle for short trips uses many more resources, whether it’s roads, parking spaces, energy, emissions, than biking.
