My name is Chris and I just bought a Trek 7100 to commute to work. It's 15 miles round trip. This is only the third day and already my legs feel like putty, but riding is so exhilarating! I live in Monroe, Louisiana and this town is NOT biker friendly at all. There are virtually no side walks and the idea of a bike trail is a long, long way off. Aside from the occasional hick shouting something witty from the passenger window of a dually, riding to work is one of the best decisions I've made in a while. (by the way, I don't have anything against hicks in dually trucks.)

Think of a friendly retort for the people in the trucks, because they will pass you later and you want them to think of you as a friend. Get a mirror to mount on your glasses or helmet so you are always aware of what is coming from behind - it will then be a lot less scarey.

Actually, just wave and smile. It will be more irritating to them than if you give them the finger, or anything else.
