Bob Patten's morning schedule is dissimilar to those of a number of commuters. Wearing a helmet, special shoes and a yellow reflective vest, he passes by the annoyances of stop and go- traffic and delays seen in Metro, because he bikes for almost two miles from his house in Takoma Park to the place of his work in Hyattsville.
He regularly travels up Riggs Road, zigzag roads through a green field and pops out on a trail close to Home Depot prior to heading up East-West Highway to Toole Design Group.
Patten said that he spends a lot of time during morning giving a thought on how to improve roads and trails so that it becomes easier for him to travel through that route in a safe and pleasant way.
No matter what, difficulties do not have the capability to stop him from traveling through the route that he always takes.
Companies for example Toole are trying to make use of innovative methods, so as to encourage and attract employees to go biking to their place of work.
Workers at Toole, who come biking to their work, receive up to $200 in souvenir cards each six months.
Patten likes REI gift cards better, which he can utilize to purchase more bike gear. Amazon and iTunes gift cards are too well-liked amongst workers, as told by Jennifer Toole, President of the business.
