A buddy & I have been commuting for several weeks to work. As we walk in with our gear to our cubicles, we get a lot of stares and sure, some snickers. We also get questions about commuting by bike. How long do we ride for? do we sweat?, where do we stash our clothes? Etc. By the looks of the bike rack, a few of my co-workers have decided to give commuting by bike a try! I read once that the best way to influence people to ride is by setting an example, not by just talking about it.
