    Great podcast.

    Peter’s comments on many things resonated with me. He exactly reflected my experience as I have transitioned from a primarily recreational cyclist to a utility cyclist, via a commute that sounds very similar to his, but here in Vancouver. Wetter, perhaps. A lot of my love for the city in which I live comes from the way I get around. Being a cycle commuter is part of my identity. Like him, if I had to drive, I may not have stuck it out. I’m also increasingly involved in bike advocacy. Part of my effort is in gently encouraging enthusiast-style cyclists to also get involved.

    A lot of the CT articles I enjoy have been written by Peter.
