Health, Desire to commute, Enjoyment of riding
I want to lose weight. 32 years of "where did this come from" weight gain.
I am interested in commuting to work. My community has created a bike path which takes me nearly to my work. The paths, contrary to the bad rap they get in this forum, have very little hazaards or intersections, because they are built upon park areas. My trip to work will only add 3 miles more than driving.
My wife and I bought each other bikes last Christmas, and I never realized I would have this much fun. This recreation is scenic, social, invigorating, relaxing, and explorative.
Thanks for asking.
