Hi, this is John. I’m a bike commuter from Columbus, Georgia. I use this blog to discuss stories and issues from the world of biking and walking. I especially focus on the Southeast U.S.

I’ve been a bike enthusiast for several years. I ride my bicycle to and from work most days, even though I live in one of the most car-dominated regions in the world. Riding bicycles can feel liberating sometimes, but living car-free (or car-lite) is not always easy.

The name Bike Walk Life comes from my belief that an ideal life puts walking and biking at the foundation of the transportation “food pyramid.” When that pyramid gets inverted, as it does in a car-centric society, then it comes at the cost of happiness, health, and human life itself.

I hope you enjoy this blog. Please feel free to fill out the contact form if you have any comments or feedback.
