So this dude that used to work with me but moved on to a better job at a better place (lucky fool!) started commuting to work by bike.
To my job it would've been 32 miles round trip for him but now it's only 18 miles round trip. So I've been helping him deck out his commuting gear, he seems to be having a good time. The new place has indoor parking and showers.
So despite all the people who make fun of me at work, at least I converted one, even if he had to convert after switching jobs. I'm on the verge of converting this other guy I know from high school who is at least 150 lbs over weight and has like, a 20 block (approx 1 mile) commute in midtown.
