Our next story comes from Jesse.
Where I Ride: Chelsea, East Boston, Everett, Medford, Revere
How Often I Ride: Every day, all year
I started riding again after more than twenty years because I rediscovered the joys of riding and the view, the challenges, and feel of getting things done via a self propelled device. I have two kinds of bicycles, one is a road bike I spend my sunny days on, and the others are mountain bikes. I ride where I haven't been before in the city, or in the snow, rain, or extreme cold. I get shopping done with my cargo trailer. I get closer to nature, finding parks and reserves I didn't know existed before.
I have also been trying to get the city I live in to change many of the dangerous storm grates along some of our most used streets. I use drive up banks and restaurants on my bike, I love finding new routes to favorite shopping areas. Twenty years ago I rode to Cape Cod from Boston. I would like to do that again someday.
