  • 40% of trips are less than 2 miles – many Cowork Waldo members live and work in and around Waldo, Brookside, South Kansas City and even over the state line in Prairie Village, Kansas, all within 2 miles of our space
  • Over the past decade, the amount of people who commute to work has increased by 62% – incredible!
  • A daily 4-mile bike commute will save about 66 gallons of fuel per year – Wowza!
  • Bicycle commuting burns an average of 540 calories per hour – who doesn’t like to burn calories!

Don’t believe us, here’s what some Cowork Waldo members have to say about biking to cowork.

“Cowork Waldo’s closeness to my house (and easy bike access to it) is part of the reason I chose it as a coworking space. Plus going from Red Bridge to Waldo has given me new respect for the massive hills on Holmes!”

~ Scott

“Biking to work really makes me feel like I’m part of the community. It’s great to see what is happening around the neighborhood and wave to neighbors as I pass by each morning. I also love that I can keep my footprint small by sharing a workspace close to home and commuting without a car!”

~ Jess
