    Communiting in Atlanta, GA

    After getting the kids (almost) out of the house, and getting a new job, I am FINALLY enjoying a daily bike commute. It's a little short (9 miles round trip), but I go rain or shine or ice.

    I recently upgraded my '88 rockhopper (which weighed in at 38 lbs with rack, milk crate and lock) for a '98 C'dale front suspension. A bit easier on my 45 year old bones.

    For road riding on weekends, I just purchased a '93 Trek 1500. I rode it to work for its first paces today, and felt like I was gliding up the hills. I guess I have to thank my rockhopper for the weight training.

    I'd love to hear from more Atlanta commuters: we're a rare breed, it seems. Probably because employers don't supply showers - a must in this temperate rainforest!

    Welcome from another Atlanta commuter. There are lots of us here.

    My commute is 8.5 miles one way. I commute from Decatur (North DeKalb Mall area) to the Virginia-Highland area. I ride mostly through neighborhoods and the Emory campus to get to work, although I am on busy roads (Lawrenceville Hwy, Clairmont Ave, Briarcliff Rd) during the ride (as briefly as possible ). Seems that some of the side streets are just as dangerous as the main roads.

    What parts of town do you ride through?
