It takes about the same amount of time for Sasha to ride to work as it does to drive. However, her old bike was too small for her and without a rack or basket she was forced to carry a backpack. In her words, "my bike doesn't motivate me to ride." With her new Breezer Liberty she can't wait to hit the bike path in the morning, and she can carry all her stuff in an expandable rack bag with built-in panniers. Plus she is totally styling with her pink Nutcase helmet!
