I travel about four miles on neighborhood roads to a bike path which takes me into D.C. and within about 7 blocks of my office. Sweet!
I am 44, a software developer (no tools to carry to work) and have been riding my bicycle again for about a year and a half. AND!! Am planning a cross country ride this October-December down the coast to Florida, across Adventure Bicycling's Southern Route, and up from San Diego to San Louis Obispo. Can't Wait!!
Please Help me choose a bike. I am riding a Trek 700 hybred now, but want to buy a new bike for my cross country ride. So far I am almost sold on this year's Cannondale T2000, but can anyone tell me good or bad info on REI's touring bikes (Novara Randonee and Safari)?
