Local Man Rides Thousands Of Miles For Commute

This week's 'Getting There' column in the Spokesman-Review is a profile of a local man who bicycle commutes. He's not just any bike rider though, this guy expects to log 6,000 miles this year, all commuting back and forth to work. Crazy, huh? But not so crazy when you consider the benefits. Here's the story.

Also, there's a mention in the column of SRTC's new 'Transportation Advisory Committee' and how you can apply to be a member if you're interested.
