Photos: Connor Barwin Bikes To Work – Do we ever get tired of Connor, I don’t think so.
It’s a well known fact now that Connor Barwin likes to bike to work. (remember that’s how he found Ralph Brooks Park as he passed it on his way to work; then he helped renovate it through hard work and sweat equity.)
Connor told USA Today transportation alternatives was always an important principle in his life. “It’s something that I’ve always understood. Obviously my dad’s a city manager so he talked about public transit, he was always trying to improve the transit system in Detroit when I was growing up. When I played in Houston, which is not a public transit-friendly city, I did ride my bike and I did their one train line that they had more out of principle,” he said.
“But when I moved to Philly it was great because they have more of a real public transit system, a real subway system, now they have a real bike sharing program so when I use it, it’s purely out of function not principle which is great.”
Capital One, the official banking sponsor of the City of Philadelphia’s bike share program Indego, partnered with Connor Barwin and several bloggers in Philly to promote the popular co-sharing Bikes and offer a $5 off deal for your first month’s membership.

I jumped in a car and said follow those bikes, I need to beat them to the stadium.
Indego recently opened up additional bike stations in Philly: 9th and Arch streets, 19th and Lombard streets, Girard and Leopard streets, 38th and Lancaster streets, 10th and Reed streets, 17th and Girard streets, 6th and Fairmount streets, 21st and Catherine streets, Broad and Federal streets, and 24th and Sansom streets.
Yesterday I was in Old City, there’s an Indego station on Market Street that sits in the street. I was told it was the most used station out of all of them in the City. It’s near 2nd Street.
