    Hello from Italy

    Hello there!
    I just found your interesting forum on the internet and I decided to join.
    I live in Rome and just a month or so ago I decided I was tired to commute by car and switched to multimodal commuting. I live 25 kilometers away from my office and there is no way I can reach the office by bike only (the streets from home to the office are just not safe for riding)

    So, I bought a Red Dahon Eco 3 that I ride 2 kilometers from home to the train station, fold the bike ride the train, unfold it and ride the remaining 2 kilomters to my office.

    I feel like I discovered a new way of life. It's a very good way to exercise, I don't get stressed and angry in the crazy roman traffic and I found out ciclying releases tons of endorphines in my system so I am always in a good mood in the morning.

    What else to say.... I would recommend this way of commuting to everyone.
    Here is a picture of my ride "parked" in front of my desk and on the train
