Commute: 1.9 miles each way in Downtown Atlanta. (Inman Park to Woodruff Park for any locals)
Work: Very corporate environment, work late often, dry cleaning regularly. However, I found the EMPTY bike rack by the loading dock. and claimed it as mine. It's behind security.
Bike: Pics coming soon. 1999 Trek 2300, 1995 Giant ATX 760 with RS Judy on it(my first love) both are in race rig form and one will need to be transformed with a rack/paniers and a flight deck of lights. If this works out I'll get a sweet hybrid or single speed as purposeful commuting machine.
Not sure how I will be handling the clipless pedals, shoes, and spare clothes when it rains but, like everybody else, I'll figure this out.
Best part: I'll save $100 per month on parking fees and be able to park in my building not accross the street in the parking deck.
I'm open to advice. I did check out the stickies, read the general advice stuff. But I cant get all that stuff before starting. I need just start commuting with the stuff I cary on long rides and go from there.
My biggest concern is getting my hair wet and sweaty as I wear a lot of hiargel.
Check on me:if I dont followup by Friday. I expect a 3 week onboarding process.
