Garrett

Garrett in the Pike Place Market
What brand and type of bicycle do you have?
I ride a Trek 520.

Why do you ride? 
I ride bicycles for several reasons. One, it reduces the environmental impact I have on our planet. Two, I love the feeling of riding a bike, and it never seems to go away. Finally, it provides a chance to slow down and have some quiet, introspective time during the daily hubbub of life. 

Where do you ride? 
I ride all around the city, but my favorite place to ride in Seattle is the Elliot Bay Trail from the sculpture park to the locks. 

What's the best thing that happened to you while riding? 
Riding through the Redwood forest with my good buddy, Jesse.

Julie

Julie at Eighth Avenue Northwest and Northwest 65th Street
What brand and type of bicycle do you have?
I ride a Trek Hybrid.

Why do you ride? 
I ride for many different reasons: it is an environmentally responsible way to travel, it is affordable, it is often faster than the bus, and I ride for the sheer joy of it!

Where do you ride? 
I ride everywhere. I do not own a car so it is my primary mode of transportation. I commute to work downtown, and to teach at a yoga studio in Greenwood, run all my errands by bike, and explore surrounding areas for fun on the weekends. 

What's the best thing that happened to you while riding? 
I love that riding is such a great way to cover a lot of ground and see things off the beaten path. I have discovered so much wonderful public art and creative home/landscape design, and  on a bike I have the freedom to stop and appreciate it.
