For most people, commuting to work is not something you savor. Yet Geoff Williams has a different perspective. Since he began working for Brown University in 2005, he pedals into downtown Providence, R.I., year-round on the 14-mile East Bay Bicycle Path (EBBP)—often stopping to snap photos on the way. "It's gorgeous every morning," says Williams. "I find myself slowing down sometimes, because it's so nice to ride along there."
