“High gas prices have justified my buying a new bike,” said Steve Roach, a lawyer who commutes from Grosse Pointe Park to the downtown Detroit offices of Miller, Canfield, Paddock and Stone.
“I’ve ridden 40 times so far to work,” Roach said of his commutes this year. “I know I’m not the only one. Our building just put in a bike rack. There are three or four bikes on it every day.”
