I'm fairly new to biking - just got my bike last year - but I'm pretty excited about biking to work this year! I came over to the BikeForums from Customers Suck, where I've posted for a while under the same username.
Edited to add, I suppose I should mention I'm riding a Norco Pinnacle, which is quite a comfy bike after a lifetime of handmedown ten-speeds, and I'm lusting after a couple of cruiser bikes at the local bike shop (mostly because I want a basket on the handlebars!! It won't work on the Norco...). My commuting options are 16 km mostly flat (following river) or 12 over lots of hills (I would like to know WHO put so many hills in a supposedly Prairie town??).
