Possibly moving to Cupertino area. Car free, car light?
I could possibly be moving to Cupertino area in the next few months. I would like to be car free / car light. Not for any other reason then i love riding my bike. And with work, life, etc, sometimes that gets pushed back. To avoid that why not ride to work.
Now currently I live in DFW area, and the ride to work is a 52 mile return, that I used to do fairly often, and then I started loosing my nerve on some of the roads I HAD to ride on. A 50mph dual lane, no cycle lane, sun rising and setting blinding drivers....
So, i'm not scared of time, or distance, or darkness. I've done rando rides, 24 hour rides (in teams of two or three), and so on.
I have my road bikes, and my commuter bike with panniers, big lights etc.
The area i'm looking at working is that fruity place. Do you have any suggestions on areas to live? I'm looking for an apartment for one - and bikes. I like the friendly, take a 6 pack in, type of bike shop.
Thanks in advance!
