The 2007 Bike Commuter of the Year for Santa Clara County is Jack Miller of Mountain View. Jack has been the ultimate bike commuter for decades. Rain or shine, Jack can be found pedaling from Mountain View to his job in San Jose and back. But Jack’s dedication to bicycling goes far beyond his work commute. As the co-coordinator of the Mountain View Bicycle Exchange, Jack volunteers his time to help repair bikes to be donated to needy families. Jack is always willing to lend a helping hand and he is an inspiration to all who encounter him.Though not explicitly recognized as such by any official agency, NOE would like to name his mother as an honorable mention in this contest, in spite of her refusal to properly fasten her helment. Even though her commute is only about two miles each way now that she is teaching at Gunn, you might not know it from how long it takes her to get there.
Hopefully you all (at least those of you who are employed) did like Jack and my mom and observed Bike to Work Day today. If not, do not worry -- you still have 364 other days to make up for it.
