Employer: Rusty George Creative
Gets around by: Biking, walking and driving
Where do you live and where do you work?
I live on the Hilltop, on L Street between 19th and 21st. I work in the triangle district, 732 Broadway (Rusty George Creative).
How do you get there?
I bike (10 – 15 minutes), walk (30 minutes), and occasionally when it’s rainy and windy I drive (10 – 15 minutes).
How does it all add up?
When I ride it takes the same amount of time as driving. Walking takes about twice as much time but it’s worth it. I save a lot in gas, not quite sure how much, it’s been awhile since I’ve driven regularly.
What’s in it for you?
My main reason for doing it is my health. Riding or walking to work is regular exercise that I can always fit into my day. Saving money and reducing my carbon footprint are also important.
Do you have any tips for people who may be trying this mode for the first time?
I think the most helpful step for me was planning out my route beforehand. Finding a safe route took away some of my initial anxiety about riding daily.
