Hello from Iowa, USA

I got a bike after I started my new job 5 weeks ago, and now I ride everywhere. Granted, my commute of 1 mile takes 8 minutes, but I enjoy it nonetheless. I bike back and forth during my lunch break, so when I get back from the office at the end of the workday I have logged 4 miles. Then I usually take it out and ride more. I'm wondering how much longer I'll be able to do this, but I'm going to enjoy it before the snow and ice storms come. I live in a pretty nice little town (Pella) in a pretty nice little state (Iowa). Pella is very biker friendly, and it seems to be a popular mode of transportation. Well, just introducing myself, I'll be glad to learn a lot from this site.

Welcome to the forums, iowan commuter! I was born and raised in East central Iowa. Was to Pella a few years ago. Spent a day there exploring the town. Nice place to visit.
