Meet City Bikers

Jane Shey – Homegrown Minneapolis

How often do you bike?

I don’t own a car, so I bike every day.

What sort of trips do you make on your bike?

I travel to work and the grocery store.

Why do you choose to bike?

It was free. I found it in my parent’s garage, made some minor repairs and I was off!

What advice do you have for fellow employees who might want to try?

Biking to and from work is a great way to ease into the day and unwind on the way home. I like the fresh air, the exercise and seeing the city through different eyes.

Do you have a particular story that is a shining example of why you choose to bike?

I don’t have to worry about finding a parking place, buying gas or getting the oil changed.
