Cycling Postmaster
Umpqua, Ore. Post Office post master Mike Holstead prepares for his commute to his home in Roseburg, Ore. on May 24, 2011. Driven by rising gas prices cutting into his finances, Halstead started commuting by bike a year ago. That means heading to work an hour earlier in the morning and getting home an hour later in the evening. He drives once a week to bring lunches, bike repair gear and clothes to the post office. On the days he bikes, he calculates he saves $5 on gas. The savings add up.(AP Photo/The News-Review, Michael Sullivan)
