Robin Souza, UCD's admissions, registrar, student affairs office of technology extraordinaire, knows how to take her time and choose well. When she decided it was time to purchase a new bike for commuting between home and the university, she spent over a year researching different bicycles. After a lengthy process of elimination, she decided upon a KHS Urban X-Press. The speedy, new commuter bicycle has been christened "Samantha" after the Sanskrit word for "balance." I asked Robin what drew her to commuting by bicycling and she responded, "When I commute, I see life on a different level. I feel the community more. And sometimes it's faster than a car!" Well Robin, may your balance remain strong and even.

Here's a fun fact: When Robin first moved to Davis, her, then, boyfriend was aghast to find out that she did not have a bike! He couldn't let her move to Davis without owning a bicycle, and so he purchased her first bicycle from B & L back in 1980. Thirty years later, they are married and still riding. It goes to show you, couples who pedal together stay together. Bicycling and Love . . . is there anything else that goes so well together?
A few days ago we got this message from Robin: Love my new bike! Have been commuting on her to work every day now!
Horrah! Keep on going!
