Talk to NC State students about your bike commute!

Ross Bassett, a professor at NCSU, is teaching a class this fall called “Cycling Cities,” which looks at why urban Americans cycle less than Europeans and what (if anything) can be done to change this.  Students will interview someone who regularly commutes by bike or does their activities of daily living by bike. If you would be willing to be interviewed please respond here.

Vanpool to NC State
