Here’s a word of inspiration from Sabrina, our uber-talented and always pedaling WBTW&SD graphic designer: “Two winters ago was the first one I bike-commuted through. The roads were well-plowed most of the time, making it extremely easy to ride. There have been so many bike-friendly improvements to the streets and a drastic increase in community awareness here that I think it’s going to keep getting easier to bike to work year-round.”
