Well, I just moved to Champaign, IL for school, and already I love the commute. The new route is 4 miles each way, but almost completely flat. For a good chunk of it close to campus there is a separate bike road. Also, people here give a lot more space to me on the bike. In Texas, I was accustomed to maybe a foot or two of clearance, but here ppl go out of their way to make room for me. I love the commute, and I just wanted to share that.
