David Schapiro, the Roland Park resident profiled in this space a few weeks ago because of his determination to take a bicycle to work in Hunt Valley, has inspired others - or, at least, one other.
After reading the July 6 column on Schapiro's healthy and eco-friendly commuting routine, a 43-year-old woman, who describes herself as "overweight, under-exercising [and] suburban-dwelling," decided to put more foot power into her trip to work at the Johns Hopkins University. "My trip consists of a ride on Light Rail, and then a two-mile walk to my office," she writes in an e-mail. "My whole commute takes about an hour one way. ... I should be walking four to seven miles every day, depending on whether I walk to and from Light Rail. I'll let you know whether it is a lifestyle change that, like David Schapiro's, takes hold!"
You go, woman.
