Sean Lowery demonstrates mounting his 1983 Raleigh Olympian bicycle. It has fenders and front and rear racks for transporting groceries. For his daily commute he uses a 1973 fixed-gear Schwinn Varsity.
We’ve all been there: You get in the car and begin driving your normal route, only to hit construction and be re-routed to another street, or traffic that forces you to creep along at a snail’s pace. In your annoyance, you glance out the window and spy a cyclist whizzing by and think, ‘Man, I need to get one of those.’
For Sean Lowery, commuting by bike is more than a summertime hobby - it’s a way of life. The 27-year-old Marine Villa resident has been commuting on two wheels for three years now, and has created a whole new transportation lifestyle for himself.
