new commuter / new to forum

Hi everyone,

Just started (couple of months ago) commuting to work. Depending on the route I take it can be anywhere from 8 miles to about 12. Some pretty good hills involved. So far, so good... feeling great!

Bike is a Trek FX 7.5.

Hello leadchucker, where exactly are you? My husband is from Browns Valley, and his mother and father were both born in Hammonton.

Better to bike commute than to be flying, what with fuel prices...

Yes, I've heard of the CP air estates--I imagine even those folks aren't flying their planes quite everywhere anymore .
