The Houston Chronicle Business section has a front page article on Houston oil companies encouraging employees to ride their bicycles to work.
Exxon Mobil, BP and ConocoPhillips are among the Houston-area employers trying to make it easier for employees to bike to work.
Workers already have enough excuses: potholes, impatient drivers and the Houston heat.
But some businesses are easing the commute for those who decide the exercise and reduced emissions make biking worthwhile. They’re giving them locker rooms, shower areas and safe places to park their bikes.
I would like to join this movement but my work place is 42 miles from my home.
