Connie Vandermay/FOCUS Jeremy Neuerburg commutes from his home in New York Mills to his work in Perham at least three days a week. He had a professor in college that would bike to work all year round, and at that time he thought his professor was crazy. After a while, Neuerburg says, "It grows on you, and now I like it."

Last year, the top speed in Jeremy Neuerburg's commute to work was 42 mph. That would be pretty slow in a car, but on a bicycle it's a different story.


Neuerburg, of New York Mills, makes his daily commute to and from Perham on a Trek mountain bike.

His 28-mile daily journey takes him between 30 to 55 minutes - highly influenced by weather like rain, snow, fog and especially wind.
