(KTVU) A teenager from Vallejo was surprised with a bicycle from police officers after they learned he walked about two hours to and from work in Benicia.
Jourdan Duncan has been walking to work at Pro-Form Laboratories in Benicia’s industrial park area since May. His car broke down and he did not want to ask people for rides.
“I don’t want to feel like I’m a burden to people so I take the initiative to handle myself and where I need to go from point A to point B,” he said.

Duncan estimated the walk to be about a two hour commute each way on foot. He goes up and down hills and on city streets to avoid the highway.
