About...The Urban Cyclist

Scott Rowan (aka The Urban Cyclist) began commuting daily via bicycle from his Lakeview condo to his office in the South Loop in 2004. Scott doesn't "do centuries" or weekend races and you won't find one expensive piece of cycling-specific clothing in his closet. Nearly 100% of his cycling is done on city streets as his daily mode of transportation.
His bike: a $450 Trek FX.
His clothes: $10 shorts/shirt.
His daily commute: 12 miles round trip.
His odometer: 15,000+ miles since 2004.
His favorite places to bike: wherever the crowds aren't (like Central America).
