    Great article Paul! Here I thought I was really something biking 8 to 16 miles to work every day back in my 20s. Wow! Now I am inspired to get out the old bike and start again!

    Nice story!

    To Twila, spend a bit of time to get outfitted for the bike to work and you’ll be glad you did. ie, fenders if you live in rain country, a decent set of bike shoes, shorts, jersey, panniers, lights & my favorite a construction worker class 3 high viability vest. It’s not that you “need” this stuff, but if you have it you’ll find the ride to work and arriving clean/dry/warm/safely makes you want to do it more not less.

    Great reporting! I’ve commuted by bicycle for more than 15 years to HP — on three continents; Singapore, France, and of course in the Bay Area. Not only is biking to work a lot cheaper and more righteous than driving a car, it is a heck of a lot more fun. HP provides showers, covered bike parking, a locker room, soap, etc at all of the places I’ve worked — that type of employer commitment is almost as inspiring as the twins 😉

    As somebody who spent about a year and half at Magic (and who cares an awful lot about those girls), I am amazed by your ability to capture their spirits. I’m currently in Austin on a cross-country bike ride and reading your blog, I can just picture their smiling faces and enthusiasm for everything. Thanks for such a great article.

    You have to think that the younger generation will survive the terrible trashbin they’re inheriting simply by being honest and realistic about life’s options. Thanks for this moving portrait of a better life for us all!!

    What a wonderful story! Although the amount of energy it takes to fuel those two, both for riding and growing, must be astonishing! I can hardly keep my 6 year old out of the hypoglycemic range when he has a day full of playing. I guess it takes a lot of carbo-loading!
