Tomorrow morning will be the first day that I will be riding my bike to work. It is about 20miles one way. I have rode the route 4 time there and back and have had no issues. I plan to start one day a week and hopefully get to 3-4 days a week.
I plan on it taking me a little less than two hours based on my times of testing out the route. It would be faster but I have a sluggish mountain bike and I'm still pretty new to cycling so my speed isn't exceptional. Only thing that sucks is I have to be to work by 5am on Thursdays and 4:30am Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday. I can't ride on Mondays because I don't have an opportunity to make it to the showers on Mondays.
Any general advice for a new commuter???? I think I have all my bases covered but any input would be greatly appreciated.
