For the second consecutive year, DEEP Commissioner Esty is doing the 35-mile ride from his home in Cheshire to West Hartford, then continuing on to Hartford. Asked why he backs bike commuting, Esty says “Cycling is a healthy, cheap, and environmentally-friendly alternative to driving to work. Any day that begins with a bike ride is a good day!”
