After I finished riding downtown with West Seattle Bike Connections’ Don Brubeck, I saw a lean figure blaze by on a cool bike. I gave chase and caught up with Everett near Safeco Field. He’s a bike courier for Jimmy John’s.
“I’ve pretty much been doing it since I was 17 or 18 and I’m now 23. I just really like bikes, and like the freedom of riding around. Biking is a great way to meet a lot of people. I moved to Seattle from San Antonio. The bike scene there wasn’t really that great. Here in Seattle it’s pretty much alive and kickin’.”
“I got my dad biking. He’s had a couple of health problems, and I actually got him into biking so he could lose weight. Now he bikes 2-3 miles a day.”
