James of Greenville, SC is the star of “A Bike Commuter’s Morning Routine” video that was posted to the Greenville News. The video briefly explains some of the logistics of a typical bicycle commute for those who are interested but haven’t tried riding to work.

    I commute in all weather—including the summer here when it’s 85+ degrees by 7AM. I don’t have shower facilities at work and I haven’t had any problem with stinking, either. A quick rubdown with an alcohol wipe, followed by some deodorant and body spray and I’m fine. I shave my head, so I don’t have the problem with hair maintenance some people do.

  2. This site is great. I got wind of it through Dirt Rag issue #128. I love it. Having a place where commuters can come together is great. I have you linked on my blog. I hope that things continue to go well. May prosper! 🙂

    Good job James! It’s an important point that it takes most people only a few more minutes (10-15) to ride than it does to drive. And if someone’s going to the gym anyway, then they’re most likely saving time overall by replacing their commute & workout with a bike ride.

    Even on cooler mornings (in the 30s) I still end up gooey by the time I reach work. Then it dries to a nice whole-body crust! I wouldn’t be very popular if I couldn’t shower, but I’d sure be well known!
