Matt Dudek: Biking Commuter

February 3, 2011 at 3:45 pm 2 comments

Matt Dudek lives in Durham’s Cleveland Holloway neighborhood, from which he commutes daily to UNC by a combination of bicycle and bus.  He either takes Triangle Transit from Durham Station or the free Robertson Scholars bus from Duke’s west campus.

Matt first started bicycling regularly as an exchange student in England.  When he returned to the USA he lived in the Boston area and commuted by rail into the city.  After he moved to Durham, the bicycle became his main mode of transportation again.  Matt has not owned a car for seven years, saving him tens of thousands of dollars.

In Cleveland Holloway you see lots of people on or working on bicycles.  Matt  says, “I have kids knocking on my door asking to borrow my tire pump all the time…It is a pretty tight neighborhood group.”  He used to volunteer regularly at the bicycle co-op to help people fix up their bicycles.  Recently, the pressures of finishing graduate school have taken that time away, but keep an eye out for Matt, because he is always glad to give bicycling tips and share his knowledge with a neighbor
