After visiting this forum for about 2 weeks now, I have decided to plan a commute to my work. I have actually never thought about riding to work. I mostly just do XC riding, but I think I might give it a shot. Here are my only issues. I have seen maybe one person biking in the rout that I take to work in the past year, and for good reason... itís dangerous. The traffic in Indianapolis isn't too bad, but cars have no regard to cyclist, and there are many intersections and interstate on ramps/off ramps as well. There are approximately 12 stop lights in a 5 mile span on the way I travel. There is another way that I can go, that would eliminate about 5 of these, and wouldnít put me out of the way too much. It takes me 15 minutes to travel 5 miles by car, on a light traffic day. I think I could make it to work in about 30 by bike. Also I would need a good place to lock it up so no one will mess with it (Iíve had my truck broke into once already, wouldn't want a bike to get stolen as well) so what tips do you daily commuters have on traveling in high traffic, and securing your bike. Any ideas would be helpful.
