Glad to find this forum.
I commute ~40 mi a day from Olathe, KS to Kansas City, MO. 4 days a week. It all started over a year ago when our company challenged us to find ways to exercise more. After several interim steps I decided to ride my bike home one day. That was all it took… I was hooked.
My bike is an old 70's Motobecane that has been hanging in my garage for years. It's really a very good commuting bike other than the center-bar shifters. I hope to upgrade in the spring.
Oh, I'm 51.
