Introductions - Hi from Minneapolis
Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes. Our community can help you find information about hard-to-find and localized information like bicycle tours, specialties like where in your area to have your recumbent bike serviced, or what are the best bicycle tires and seats for the activities you use your bike for.
Howdy. I hail from suburban Minneapolis, MN, riding a 1990s (I think) vintage Schwinn "World Sport" 12-speed road bike I got from a former coworker for $free last year. I've been commuting to work by bike (22 miles one way) 0 to 2 times a week since August 2005. This week is my first attempt at biking to work all 5 days. :)

Good luck Zekat and welcome to BF! Lots of commuters here who ride to work year round. You've got a long commute so check out the Very Long Commuters Club thread to swap stories and read about other people's commutes.

Can't go wrong with a free bike. Welcome. :)
Thanks for the welcome.
The bike was free, but I hate to think what the upgrades (have already (and no doubt will continue (parenthesis are fun!))) to cost! :)
Awesome bro, commuting on a bike is alot more rewarding vs. driving. I'm glad you've made that step, and I hope you feel the burn!
