Why is there a bicycle on a writing-coach website?
Wordsmith coaches and tutors are encouraged to follow Nic's example and bike to as many appointments as they can. Biking keeps us writerly folks active and healthy; bikes never get stuck in traffic, and almost always can park closer to their destination than any automobile. Bike commuting keeps our carbon footprint tiny, preventing pollution, maximizing natural resources, easing traffic congestion ("One Less Car", as LACBC points out), and generally making us and others happier and healthier. Plus we now enjoy bike-sharing lanes on several major streets in our urban neighborhood, marked by "sharrows" (share-the-lane arrows) painted on the pavement of those lanes.
While saving a considerable amount of gas money, it also keeps miles of wear & tear off our cars. Because of this, if you can meet us within a biking radius, you will not be charged any travel fee.

Xtracycle and the bloggers at BikeCommuters.com. Ask Nic for a test-ride of his FreeRadical-equipped Jamis, he'll be happy to oblige.
