#irideYEG – Andrew Rogers

What is your commute like?

I ride a few days a week along roads, paths, and the ravine.

How long have you been cycling? What got you started?

I was reintroduced to cycling this past month after a ten year hiatus. I decided one day that I should become healthier, and I remembered that I used to love bike riding as a child, so, on a whim, I went out and bought a bike. Now my favourite pastime is to ride out bicycling to take pictures of beautiful YEG.

I started to bicycle commute when I realized some of the jobs I had, it would be faster to bike than to take transit.
