Meet City Bikers

Daniel Swalve – Police Department


How often do you bike?

Three to five times per week

What sort of trips do you make on your bike?

As often as possible, I ride my bike to work in the morning and then home in the evening. This enables me to enjoy the morning darkness and the afternoon sunshine. 

Why do you choose to bike?

My bicycle makes me feel free and at one with the outdoors when I am riding. I can escape the nastiness of the automobile for at least a short time.

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

Give it a try, but start slow. You have to be in really good shape to get where I am at, riding both to and from work for a total of more than 45 miles!
