I got my bike last week and after a tune up and some new accessories I rode for the first time to work. It is six miles each way and it took me 27 minutes to and from. I am riding a Giant FCR 3 with 28mm tires. I had no crazy car stories and it was cool riding through the country side in the fog and hearing the birds and horses rumbling about. Anyway I can't wait to start riding every day and getting into better shape.
