I enjoy bicycling as recreation, and my primary form of transport.  I have commuted by bicycle in Cincinnati, Hartford, Tucson, San Francisco, Houston, Minneapolis, and Austin.  I have lived in Austin car-free since 1999, and I commute by bike, foot, bus, and train.

I mostly ride a Surly Cross Check with pannier bags and racks for carrying items.  During the summer in the 100 plus degree days, I wear extra comfortable – yet office appropriate – clothing, like seersucker shirts, to keep cool.  Also, a wide brimmed hat helps, and so does bringing deodorant and a hand towel to wipe off the sweat if needed.
