Hello, I'm Daly.

People often ask me what is Cuter Commuter. Since I can't always point them to the About Cuter Commuter page, I made this short video for fun. Cuter Commuter's mission is to encourage the utilitarian use of bicycles as a lifestyle. Through education, advocacy and social activities--and by being a role model, I hope to inspire other people, especially women, to ride their bicycles to work, to school, to run errands, to fun, and to...EVERYWHERE!!




This morning my husband and I rode together to have breakfast at Peg's Glorified Ham n Eggs in Sparks. There's a safe, quiet residential street from South D'Andrea Parkway to a bicycle pedestrian path that run north and south along Sparks Boulevard. The path led us right to Prater Way where the restaurant is located. Short and easy.
Riding bicycles to breakfast
Bike to Breakfast at Peg's Glorified Ham n Eggs

It was about 6.5 miles roundtrip from where we live. Good thing we had a nice long hill to ride back up on our way home because I needed to work off that yummy breakfast!!
Riding your bike places does not have to be scary. It just requires you to choose a route that is off the beaten path. Don't go where most people driving cars go. Why breathe all the exhaust anyway? Taking quiet streets with lower speed limits is safer and less stressful :-) So I challenge you to find a different route when you drive from place to place. Evaluate that route to see if it is a street you'd feel comfortable riding a bike on. And you can always ask me. I'd be happy to help you choose bike-friendly streets and find a safer route from A to B. Just shoot me an email at info@cutercommuter.com
Have a happy and safe Sunday!!
