HI, I found the Bike Forum, after searching the web for info on commuting by bike. I just started biking again last year when I started trying to commute to work. I am 45, and live in Kentucky, not exactly the biking capital of the world. I am a Control System Analyst; I just bought a new Raleigh Venture to replace my 20-year-old huffy mountain bike. I am hoping that makes my 5-mile ride to work a little more pleasant. I have enjoyed reading the posting about commuting.
