Citrus Heights is a 100% suburbia USA place near Sacramento.
I ride to work when I can 6 miles each way. It's great; almost the entire route is residential streets.We do construction & lots of time I have to go to jibsites, so I have to drive.
I had been going to the gym in the morning during the winter & driving to work, and then bike commuting in the summer.
The gym closed, so the goal now is to extend the bike riding as far into the winter as I can.
I will admit right now that I am a wuss as far as cold weather goes, so we will see what happens.
In Sacramento, cold weather is 60°.
