Resources for Commuters
You can do it!
We believe that anyone can get around by bike. Each year, the number of people who choose bicycling for transportation is steadily increasing. For example, commuting by bicycling increased in Seattle by 22% between 2009 and 2010. And we know that many more WANT to get around by bike as much as 60% of the population. Below are some resources and information to help you embark.
