I found this board looking for information on commuting. I'm taking a job in Austin, TX and will be living 4.8 miles from work. There is a bus, but I want to get a bike for health/well-being. (Plus, parking is tricky.) Currently, I live in Ohio and drive 40 minutes (20 miles) each way to work, and I just resent being tied to my car. So I'm looking forward to getting to work under my own power!
