    Finding my cycling peeps

    I just moved to a small town in TX for a co-op, and I have yet to see a single road bike here. I live in Orange, which is 20 minutes from Beaumont - a bigger city. Is it a plausible idea to commute to get with my cycling peeps over there? Does anybody do this?

    Of course you mean Orange is 20 minutes from Beaumont by car. 20+ miles by bike takes a little longer. What roads would take to get there? Only 2 bridges, meaning I-10 or Bridge City.

    well that's a problem. I'm beginning to think it's not worth it.
