No doubt many readers have seen this rider and/or his bicycle around town. We spotted him locking up in front of the Howland Library. Let’s get up close and personal with…
Name: Tim Delaney.
Years in Beacon: Four years.
Moved from: I was living in Chicago. I had a car when I moved here and I sold it, because I don’t need it. I can do everything I need by bike. I don’t regret it…[slight pause] When it’s ten degrees I sometimes have second thoughts.
Occupation: I’m in recovery from a career in advertizing. I’m semi-retired.
Where did you get your bike? I got it from a friend. He had it in his basement. I gave my old bike to my son.
What do you like about biking? Beacon’s perfect for biking. Everything’s within two miles. On a good day it’s terrific. It’s easy, it’s exercise. You don’t have to worry about parking. Even on a bad day it’s better than driving. Beacon is becoming a bike friendly town. Though it still has a ways to go.
