Hiker Public Profile


I am a mechanical engineer in Silicon Valley that lives in San Francisco. I enjoy walking and hiking. Once a year, I walk the route I drive (bus) everyday to keep the distance in perspective. I started an event around this concept called The Commute, www.walkthecommute.com

Hikes Led by Derek

  • 50 mile endurance walk - The Commute 2012 - San Jose to San Francisco
  • Hike description: The Commute is a 50 mile, 24-hour endurance walk (urban hike) from downtown San Jose to downtown San Francisco along historic Route 82 (The Alameda, El Camino Real and Mission Street). Starting in the morning, participants spend one full day walking (urban hiking) through and experiencing the communities that we often drive past in the rush of our daily commutes. Traveling this easily drivable distance at a human pace is a unique physical and mental challenge. Can you Walk the Commute? This is a paid event.
