Dr. James Beil on biking to work

1. How often do you ride your bike? To work?

Recently I got a flat tire and haven't taken the time to fix it so I haven't ridden my bike since last fall. Instead, I have been walking to work throughout the year. I intentionally looked to buy a house as close to the college as possible to allow myself that luxury.  I do enjoy riding, and I plan to get a new tire soon!  

2. What would you do to improve bike riding at LCCC?

 The most important way to improve bike riding at LCCC would be to have covered areas for people to lock up bikes to protect them from theft and from rain. Another factor that limits many riders is the danger associated with not having bike lanes on many of the busy streets in the area. If bike lanes were ubiquitous, people would be much more likely to take advantage of the health benefits of riding.
