2015 Bike Commuter of the Year Julia Busiek

Please Join us in Congratulating Julia Busiek, Marin County’s 2015 Bike Commuter of the Year!

Julia Busiek - 2015 Bike Commuter of the YearWhile the breathtaking, 20-mile stretch of West Marin from Fairfax to Point Reyes Station represents a highly anticipated weekend ride for many Bay Area residents, it’s just another day of heading to work for Julia Busiek.

Julia’s route is slightly above ordinary and certainly multi-modal including a combination of bike and bus. Typically she secures her bike on the front of the Marin Stagecoach going one direction and bikes the other. Though the bus schedule is such that sometimes it only goes halfway there, Julia will often hop off in Lagunitas and finish the trip by bike to Fairfax.

Julia enjoys the many benefits of bike commuting and has gotten to know many of her Marin neighbors through roadside tire changes and riding the West Marin Stagecoach.

“I’m really grateful for the smooth pavement and courteous drivers of San Geronimo and points west. It is an uncommonly beautiful commute and I’m lucky to be able to do it regularly and watch the seasons change”.
