Riding to work and using her bike as her main mode of transport, not just a form of exercise, is something Taren has grown to love. Along the way, Taren has also enjoyed the benefits this simple little change to her routine has provided - fun, fitness, happiness (no more getting caught in traffic congestion), money savings, convenience and not to mention getting to enjoy the fresh air.

In the words of Albert Einstein "Life is like riding a bicycle to keep your balance you must keep moving."
