I've been reading this forum for a long time and just now decided to do an intro. I have learned so much from ya'll and greatly appreciate the knowledge everyone here shares with everyone! Anyway I just got a job in downtown honolulu and did a dry run on my commute this weekend - it's a ten mile commute each way with about half of it on a MUP and half on a street with no bike lane. I hope to start doing it regularly this week after I work out the kinks - where to shower, how to convince my wife that it's not really dangerous, where to secure the bike, etc.
Biking has been my favorite activity since I can remember. I commuted for 5-6 years and raced for a few and am now just getting back into the full swing of biking regularly after being in the army for a while and not really living in places where it was safe to bike. Anyway, I am very excited to get back into my passion and also am very excited to join the online community of bikers.
