I have to say I love commuting. I haven't ridden a bike this much since I was in my mid teens, and it makes me wonder why I ever stopped (besides the whole first car and gas only being like $1.25 a gallon at the time). I love it so much it makes me wish I wasn't going to work and I could just keep riding. I love it so much I'm already looking in to getting a touring bike. I have also recently quit smoking and when I want to smoke, I ride instead. Thank you bicycle, and hello bicycle forums.
