I Am A Research Scientist, And I Ride

Here is another great story from our And I Ride campaign. We are seeking to put a face on cycling in support of a legislative campaign that we are working on this year. You can read the rest of these great stories here.

We are still accepting entries, so be sure to read below to find out how to send in your story.

Our next story comes from Sylvian.

Where I Ride: Brookline, Boston and Cambridge
How Often I Ride: Everyday, rain, snow, shine, freeze

My Story:

I work in a research lab looking at brains of people affected by mental disorders or traumatic brain injuries (yes, I wear a helmet and so should you). When not working, I spent most of my time playing classical music with friends. I always loved cycling as a kid and have been following le Tour de France for as long as I can remember. I started to really get serious about cycling as my primary transportation when I moved to Boston in 2003. I ride everyday to work, and pretty much everywhere else. I have not owned a car since 1998 and intend to keep it this way for as long as possible.

My bicycle is a modern twist of an old english or dutch bike. It was built by the wonderful folks at Broadway Bicycle School in Cambridge, MA. It's the perfect commuting machine, smooth as butter and sturdy as a rock (and almost as heavy!)

Thanks Sylvian!
