I usually ride through the winding back roads of three small towns to get to work from my city home. Occasionally, I'll take the bike path and highway route, depending on road conditions.
I am a 58-year old granny who has lost 30 pounds since I stopped driving and started riding a bike full time.
I get a lot of smiles, compliments, and words of encouragement during my rides. People in the area seem to enjoy seeing an energetic old-timer enjoying her bike rides.
