Who: Vincent Porter

Age: 21

Occupation: Student at W.P. Carey School of Business at Arizona State University

His Neighborhood: Tempe

Where spotted: Central Avenue and Van Buren Street, Downtown

What do you enjoy about Downtown? It has a city feel without the feel of a rat race.

Where do you like to explore? I like to go to the Crescent Ballroom pretty often, and of course I go to class on the Downtown campus.

What is your biggest reason for riding your bike around rather than a car? Gas. Gas is way too expensive.

How do you balance looking nice with riding a bike? I don’t really force anything, I just kinda put things on and go.
