    I hate riding past freeway entrances. After the first time, I used the sidewalk and tried hard to find routes that did not cross freeway entrances. Now I'm more comfortable, and also a little faster...

    The posts above made me look and I found this on the IKEA page:
    Complies with EN ISO 20471:2013 and ANSI/ISEA 107-2010.

    BMX bike for the win - ride up and down those stairs :) I wish I could convert to a home office - would allow me to move out of the very expensive SF bay area!

    Can you use SamTrans or VTA for part of your route? If you time it well, you could just use the bus for some of your commute.
