April 23, 2008 - 0 Comments

As part of the Earth day celebration, today is bike to work day at Cisco. Blair Christie, SVP, Corporate Communications, and Laura Ipsen, SVP, of Global Policy and Government Affairs and co-chair of the Eco-Board at Cisco, were among the approximately 700 Cisco San Jose employees who biked to work today. Laura and Blair both live in Los Gatos and it was about a 20-mile bike commute to our headquarters in San Jose and took them about an hour and fifteen minutes.Blair (on the left, and in the blue) and Laura (in the Tour de France yellow) talk about dodging cars, doing an eco-friendly 1:1 meeting and reading e-mail on the bike (children: do not attempt this at home, these are trained professionals!) They answered the following questions:How was the commute on the bike?How often do you plan on biking to work in the future?How long was your commute on the bike versus in the car?
