Maggie Creviston, Sellwood 

Love to bike? So do we! Meet a few of the many dedicated cycle commuters who work at our bakeries.

The commuter: Maggie Creviston, Sellwood sandwich lead

The bike: 14-speed Univega

Daily commute: 2 ½ miles from her house near Reed College. At 5:15 in the morning. She’s also logged many miles to and from Portland State, where she earned her bachelor’s degree in Liberal Arts last year.

Years in the saddle: Six. She sold her car in 2006 and hasn’t looked back.

Why she rides: “It’s cheaper. It’s usually faster. And I love the built-in exercise, every day of my life.”

Special talent: Fitting groceries into a bike bag. Her prowess even amazes the checkers at Trader Joe’s. “No matter how much I buy, somehow I find a place for it in there.”

 Favorite fuel: “I love to drink coconut water – It has a ton of natural electrolytes!”

 Away from GCB: “I cook, play a mad game of pin ball and do some home crafty things.”

Memorable commute: “I actually rode home in a snow storm a few years agom from Southeast  33rd and Belmont to N. Buffalo (about a 6 mile ride). I rode like 3 miles an hour the whole way home. As I passed other bikers we would warn each other of slick black ice spots that we had seen. It was an adventure!”
