Have been looking through this site and joined up when I found it had a 50+ forum, jk.
I cummuted on a bike for about 10 years and after retiring looked to go a little further. It was only five miles from my house to the downtown Halifax which took 20 minutes on the bike as opposed to 30 - 45 minutes plus in my car. Plus gas, parking and stress.
I have a Peugeot Evasion, which I just noticed is made in Canada, I've been changing things around to get a little more comfortable and look forward to gathering more tips from the more experienced.
