I Love Riding in the City

NAME: Emily Taylor


OCCUPATION: Co-owner of Po Campo

Where do you live and what’s it like riding in your city?

In Chicago it’s flat and full of traffic, so if you can handle riding in the cold or heat it’s really the perfect way to get around.

What was your favorite city to ride in, and why?

Seriously Chicago, but Europe is always ideal and Austin has some great bike paths.

Why do you love riding in the city?

It’s just as fast, if not faster than other forms of transit and much easier to find parking. Plus it’s a great, open minded culture to be a part of.

Or just say whatever you want about riding in the city… Poetry anyone?

The beauty of the city is diversity and transportation variations are part of the whole system. Cycling is my part, along with public transit, and it keeps me from being another angry hot head behind a wheel.
