2010 Bike Commuters of the Year Announced!

Andrew Casteel —

The 2010 Bike Commuters of the Years have been selected. These cyclists have been recognized for their inspiring dedication to riding their bicycle for everyday transportation. Alameda County's Bike Commuter of the Year is TD Fisher, who gave up her car and now rides up to 15 miles each day carrying equipment for her job. “I quickly figured out how to do that with metal racks that fold, bungees and front panniers. The kids who I work with love it when they see me show up on the bike,” according to TD. San Francisco's Bike Commuter of the Year, John Murphy, bikes 45 miles two days a week with the San Francisco to Google (SF2G) bike group. The other three days he combines a 20 mile bike ride and 70 miles riding on Caltrain with his Bike to get from San Francisco to Santa Clara.
