Success at Work and On the Trails
Early this March, Perficient’s St. Louis Bike Team took a leisurely ride at Grant’s Trail. The team, which was founded in the summer of 2019, has spent the past year exploring Missouri’s scenic trails. Grant’s Trail stretches eight miles through St. Louis County and made for a beautiful ride for the team.
In attendance were Jeremy Limones (Corporate Marketing), Monish Verma (Consulting), Mike Burkhart (STL Consulting), Denise Burt (Corporate Accounting and Reporting), Matthew Dickerman (Corporate Marketing), and Mattie Yallaly (Corporate Travel and Expense).
“I am a firm supporter of companies that invest in the environment and in their people. At Perficient, we are encouraged to share what matters to us by joining a group or creating one if one does not exist. I am very excited to be part of the Perficient Bike Club. Cycling is a big part of my life and it feels good to be able to share that with my fellow teammates and work for a company that supports my passion and invests in my well-being.” — Jeremy Limones, Associate Marketing Coordinator
Biking Creates Healthy Opportunities to Hang Out
Harvard Health advocates for bike riding, claiming that “going for a ride is good for your heart and muscles, and it may improve how you walk, balance, and climb stairs.” Specifically, it mentions the top benefits to biking include it’s easy on the joints, pushing pedals provides an aerobic workout, cycling builds muscle, it helps with everyday activities, and that pedaling builds bone.
