Column The News: ‘I have more money in my pocket and am healthier, too’

My latest column in the Maple Ridge News:

Posted Mar 27, 2014

As I was parking my bike in front of municipal hall recently, an elderly lady was unlocking her bike.

As I often do with fellow riders, we had a little bike talk. She told me she could no longer drive her car because she didn’t pass her last driving test. So now she bikes to get around.

“You wouldn’t believe how much money I get to keep in my pocket,” she said. “And I’m much healthier, too.”

I love these types of conversations, which I’d never have if I solely depended on my car to get around.

I was at municipal hall to take a look at the draft transportation plan.
