We found him!

by RL Policar

Quite a while ago we had an altar call to see if we can find just the right person to help us out with the site. Well, we found him!

Meet John LaPierre:


John is from Columbus Ga. and he’s a big cycling fanatic and you guessed it a bicycle commuter! He even had his own blog that he ran called “The Big Fat Cycling Geek. ” We chose John because the fella lost about 100lbs from cycling alone! But he’s not done yet, he still wants to lose another 50lbs, dang John, way to go! Now that’s discipline and dedication.

He’ll be helping us out with some of the day to day responsibilities of posting new material and even reviewing products. Keep an eye out for John’s work.

I wanted to thanks everyone that sent in their emails of interest for helping out. When and not if, but WHEN the site grows, we’ll probably be recruiting once more.

Thanks again John, and welcome aboard!

    Thanks RL and the Commute by Bike Team! I hope I don’t get fired, but it’s not cycling alone that made me lose weight. I am eating less, between 2000 – 3000 calories a day, depending on how much I ride and how ‘good’ I am. But I will say this, it is my love for cycling that keeps me motivated to eat less. I will be posting some of my experiences and more about losing weight soon. Thanks again – I am very excited to be a part of the team.
