It is my 3rd week commuting to work. I just wanted to thank all of the experienced riders for their posts. Your posts have taken a lot of the guesswork out of commuting and have helped make starting off go smooth.
I see why you all get hooked on this so easy. I've had a blast riding to work every day. I find myself looking forward to waking up every day to ride, instead of having to drag myself out of bed to drive to work. I ride 8 miles each way, and have tried to stretch the ride home into a 20 miler, two or three days a week. I'm getting used to riding miles on a mountain bike with slicks instead of a lighter weight road bike. The mountain bike seems to be better suited for commuting. Thanks again for the good info.
Glad to have you!
Welcome, driven1! So, if you haven't said so already, what was it that made you decide to give commuting a try?

Now I'm hooked and know why everyone seems so content to be pedaling to work every day. Of course rising gas prices help make the decision to ride instead of drive easier........I mainly just enjoy riding twice a day.

How many of our co-workers look forward to their commute home? Only the ones on bikes.
