    New job = new commute.

    Hey all,

    I`m pretty happy right now, I have been unemployed for a while but have used my bicycle to travel everywhere. Today I went for a job interview and got the job on the spot. Woo! The commute is super short (about 10 minutes) but at least I won`t be lurking around the commuter forums and feeling like a big fake. The job itself sounds like it`ll be pretty good. (I get to build bicycles....how awesome is that?)

    Anyways,
    just excited and wanted to share.
    Happy riding!

    If you have been riding your bike everywhere then you're more than qualified to post your experiences here.

    Kudos on the new job! I hope it's something you enjoy doing!

    cradduck, thank you for the kind words.
    I hope I enjoy it as well. I am building bikes for a department store (toy store more or less) and from what I understand, I have very little supervision....but most importantly I get to play with bicycles all day! Too bad it`s just low end machines but still...better than not playing with bikes all day

    Well at very least it`ll help pay for my new road bike!

    That sounds like a really cool job! Very little supervision = more fun.
