My commute is a very pleasent route that offers a couple of ways to get to work or home with only a couple of bad intersections to have to cross. Most mornings I get out early to get in a few extra miles and am rewareded with wild life along the trail.
I am 42 years old ride a Bianchi Volpe and try to ride as much as is practical. I finally put a computer on the bike Sept 1, 2001 and now have a little over 1500 miles on it. I enjoy riding but really hate the severe cold, I dont care what they say you can not get enough clothes below about 10 degrees F.
