I'm glad I found this forum. Two years ago I was driving 70 miles a day to my job, but a tumor in one of my tonsils changed my life in many ways. Now I work in town and ride my bike or take the bus to work. After my radiation treatments and returning to work, the bike ride was the best part of my day. I commute on a road bike. In fact I've owned road bikes since the fourth grade. I still struggle a bit going up hill. But those downhills are so sweet. This weekend I rode twenty miles so I feel like I'm back on track.
