I am from San Jose, CA. 2 months later, I will move to Waterloo, Ontario, though. I started bike commuting 3 months ago when my car was totalled in an accident (not my fault). Man, I wish I had known how pleasant bike commuting was long ago.
Found this forum recently. Wow, as if I found the treasure island. Awesome.
PS. Don't let my net name fool you. I am Chinese, not Indian.
