Why do you ride to WORK?    Exercise?  Carbon saving? Money Saving?  Undocumented immigrant?

June is a big month for moving in all major cities around the USA.   Moving companies use a lot of day laborers to do all the lifting, humping, loading, and un-loading.  Many moving teams are made up of a truck driver and 2 or 3 laborers.   The moving truck drivers have to have legit driver's licenses, but the laborers don't need driver's licenses.

The bikes parked up against the fence  in the image above belong to laborers who work at an adjacent moving company.

Undocumented workers

I have seen men with their bikes crawl out from under the bridge over pass at Metrohealth - going to work in the early hours.  I haven't seen them lately since the bridge was worked on - but amazed at these men who live so humbly and still WORK to send money home.
