Hello from SF Bay Area
Hey everyone, I joined the forum a month ago. I started posting today.
I'm a college student, interested in an alternative forms of transporation. I biked for fun back when I was in high school for fun. I stopped for a year after my parents brought me a brand new car.
I later found out that living with a car is not as fun as everyone perceived it was. I find it highly stressful to be stuck in traffic, and dealing with rude drivers. It really takes it toll on your blood pressure. Not to mention spending 40% of my income from my minimium wage job on car expenses. I've finally looked at a way to ditch the car and get on the bike.
From a start I'm looking at commuting to work instead of driving. It's alot funner anyways, I enjoy biking, but I dislike driving. I don't have anything against cars, they do serve their purposes, I just perfer to bike. I just need to get into shape, and go from there. I'm too out of shape right now.
