Jump on Those Bicycles

Andrew Casteel —

In the next few weeks, Bay Area residents will be encouraged to get outside, hop on a bike and ride. There are plenty of benefits for those who choose to take the challenge. Alameda students started their Bike to School Week yesterday. Adults can participate in a Bike to Work Day next Thursday, May 13. Alamedans working in Oakland can join the celebration at Frank Ogawa Plaza next to Oakland City Hall. A pancake breakfast starts at 7 a.m., and a press conference at the event will feature local elected officials and a prize raffle at 8:30 a.m.

The East Bay Bicycle Coalition announced T.D. Fisher of Oakland as the 2010 Bike Commuter of the Year winner for Alameda County. Fisher works as an orthotist, assessing and designing orthopedic and prosthetic devices that encourage growth, rehabilitation and medical comfort. Her clients include children, youth and adults, with conditions like cerebral palsy, scoliosis and Spina bifida. After ten years of commuting to work by car, Fisher decided a year and a half ago to go green - biking instead driving - declaring that she could not drive to her job another day. Although her commute from home to office is short, she sometimes uses BART but often bikes 25 to 35 miles roundtrip on a single client visit. She frequents work sites in Oakley, Antioch, Lafayette and Oakland.
