    I'm in Coxsackie. not a year rounder, but thinking about it. My route is on a 55mph road at 3pm and then at 11pm, and it can be interesting in good weather. I've been to the commuting forum, already becoming a regular

    No doubt !

    How far a distance do you ride for your commute?

    Not too bad, unless the whole trip is on that one street.
