    1 st Ride to Work

    Today I did it , just got back into riding, I went with the trek 7.5 fx and today I said I'm going to give it a try. Took me 55min. 10.5 miles from north Buffalo to South Buffalo, a few over passes that seamed to l go forever. It feels good to just do it !

    Congratulations! The best thing about riding to work is that you don't have to 'make time' to ride - it's part of your day.

If guns are outlawed, only the government will have guns. Only the police, the secret police, the military, the hired servants of our rulers. Only the government -- and a few outlaws. I intend to be among the outlaws" - Edward Abbey

    Thanks

    Thanks,
    Also rode home , passed on a ride with the wife in the van. 11.5 miles I think it was more uphill or was I more tired. Resting my body now and watching the Sabres.

    Commuting to work is contagious. The more I ride to work the more people talk to me
    about riding a bike. The more I ride the better I like it.

    +1 with chipcom. It’s great to get exercise going to and from work. It’s enjoyable and if I
    need it, it works my anxiety out.
    Enjoy the ride.

    Commuting to work is not only contagious, but also addictive, and it is something really positive you can do for your health, your budget, and the environment. I keep my cars an average of 15 years, and avoiding driving to and from work is part of the secret.
