Description

So close, yet so far away. Many of us who commute by bus or car have felt this way about our places of work across the river. In this Q&A session, a​ veteran bicycle commuter shares his experiences traveling from Leonia to Manhattan on a daily basis using regular and electric bicycles. What starts out as a one-time adventure can turn into a habit that benefits health, wealth, and mindfulness. Come and be curious. Ask questions about logistics, equipment, routes, weather, safety, physical fitness, and anything else on this topic. You need not be a cyclist, or even own a bicycle, to attend this talk. Commuting by bicycle is not for everyone, but hopefully this session will shed some light on the benefits, risks, and challenges.

Tommy Lutz is a 34​-​year old engineering manager who commutes to Manhattan by bicycle most days, regardless of the weather. You may have seen him riding a cargo bike around town, or heard of his "sail-to-work" commuting adventures. Tommy discovered bicycle commuting while living in Morris County after becoming frustrated with lengthy bus and train commutes. ​​Pursuing the cycling mode of transportation brought him and his family to Leonia. What he discovered about bicycle commuting transformed his life, but not without interesting problems along the way.
