Tucson’s Director of Transportation, Jim Glock, says he bought his Breezer Uptown Infinity for one reason and one reason only — it had a chain guard.
He says he needs a bike with a chain guard so he doesn’t have to worry about riding around Tucson in his suit.
The bike has other perks Glock appreciates. It has an internal gear hub and the built in dynamo lights which have a sensor that turn them when it gets dark.
Glock says after having a bike stolen out of his back yard, he never forgets to lock this bike.
He rides his bike to work every day and purchased a house that was within three miles of his office so that he wouldn’t have to rely on a car to get to work.
Glock says biking in Tucson is improving, but there is still a ways to go. He says if you know where you are going you can always find a safe way to get there.
