Commuter Profile – Adam Godet

On the steps of Capitol Hill, Adam Godet fits in nicely. Sharply dressed among the high-powered execs and suit-wearing bureaucrats. Adam has already had a morning strength training session and biked seven miles to the office — an impressive daily ritual. A system that has been ironed out. Something you might expect from a driven guy working in the U.S. Defense Department.

Commuter Profile – Rob Reid

Since he was a kid biking with his hockey stick over his handlebars to the ice rink, Rob has been cycling pretty much his entire life. He has the battle scars and wisdom to show for it.

We tagged along on his 22 km (14 mi) ride from his home in the nearby town of Richmond into the city of Vancouver where he works.

Now, instead of his hockey stick over his handlebars, his 2-year-old daughter Emma rides in the front seat. On her face, she wears a big grin, and you can clearly see that Rob’s love of cycling is infectious.

In August, I traded a Two Wheel Gear bag to a new friend at Shimano & Pearl iZUMi and was able to give clipless pedals a try.
