Biking in Pullman is a commute. Biking in Portland is a culture. I was lucky enough to visit my brother the weekend of 2-15 and the weather was absolutely gorgeous not a single cloud in the sky. We biked a 7 mile ride on a "bike highway." the friendliness of my fellow bikers was in stark contrast to the coldness and road rage one encounters when driving.
My brother gave me tips about how to handle traffic, cross railroad tracks and common bike traffic signals. As we arrived home, I felt energized from our ride and a bit sweaty. The commute reminded me of my childhood particularly while riding on the roads with my older brother. The zen of commuting in a green healthy way was quite fulfilling.
I thought, Derrick Skaug could get used to this.
