Mel with Bike

Melvin Yee

I work from 5:30 p.m. to 2 a.m. at the UCLA Immunogenetics laboratory. Since there were no convenient public buses to catch for the ride home, I would drive my car to work. However, with the Earn-A-Bike Program, that has all changed.

The TREK HYBRID bicycle is a nice bike.  Weight-wise, it is a light bike. I had no problem lifting the bike ontoBike and KOBE the dog. the bus bike carrier on those days when not commuting round trip. It is a solid bike for those times in traffic when you must take the street pot hole. Of course, you do your best to avoid them; otherwise, you will damage your wheel.

What can I say about riding home at 2 a.m.? It is more fun than bicycling to work in the afternoon. You still have to be careful since there are still cars on the road at 2 in the morning.

Thank you for having the Earn-A-Bike program.
