Commuting On Liquid

The Living On Liquid blogger pointed this article (Man Rows to Work, Leaving Car Behind) out to me today. It's about a 63-year-old man who bikes and rows to work. Very cool. Intersting that I could almost pull this off myself...if there were certain infrastructure items in place.

"He rides one bicycle from his home in Cheverly to a boathouse where he keeps his 21-foot-long fiberglass rowing shell. He rows 6 1/2 miles, then rides another bicycle from the river to his job at the Library of Congress. The whole trip takes about an hour-and-a-half."

When he got out of his car and into the water something changed for him, "His intimate perspective on the river has led him to get involved in the Anacostia Watershed Society, a local environmental group, and to 'adopt' a piece of shoreline that he keeps clean."

And he is undoubtedly in excellent physical shape and not suffering from stress-related issues.
