Timbuk2, the San Fran­cis­co based mak­ers of styl­ish yet durable bike bags, recent­ly con­duct­ed a study to find out why peo­ple com­mute to work via bike. The word cloud below high­lights the most sig­nif­i­cant answers.

The ben­e­fits and beau­ty of urban cycling are at the heart of Timbuk2. They were found­ed by a city bike mes­sen­ger in a San Fran garage in 1989 and have been mak­ing cus­tom bags ever since. Addi­tion­al­ly, their CEO, Mike Wal­len­fels, bike com­mutes 38 miles to work every day.

Cycling to work is encour­aged here at The Clymb as well, with sev­er­al of our team mem­bers bik­ing in each day.
