    Ok, I get your point. In my case I usually only ride one way each day, I would go out for a ride anyway so I kill two birds with one stone-my commute by bus is at least an hour, my ride is 1:45 so...

    How do the benefits of riding over driving (or using the bus in my case) drop once you get over 10 miles? My commute is 30 miles one way, perhaps I'm doing it wrong?

    Agree with the "make it a challenge" advice, but not with the podcasts-while I am a fan of some of those mentioned, I wouldn't dream of listening while riding on a busy road or indeed any road. My...

    My commute is 30 miles each way, I started in April this year and ride in one day, home the next, taking the bus in between. I've done it both ways 9 times, the most important thing I've found...

    I usually only ride one way and take the bus the other alternately; my bus ride yesterday strengthened my resolve to become more than a one way fair weather commuter-people coughing, somebody threw...

    I have a different take on the picture, it appears to me the driver may be saying sorry, I didn't see you. Lots of anger in the commuting forum lately!

    Undo the cable clamp on the brake-should give you enough clearance, means you need to have a toolkit with you. Ride home without using that brake (I speak from experience, bladed spoke broke, didn't...

    Leisesturm, I finally agree with you, although I do not use a mirror. I see riders with bar end mirrors who are clueless as to what is happening behind them-they usually have to bend to actually see...

    My commute is 30 miles each way, as others have said I split it up-I ride in one day, take the bus home and then ride home the next day. On Fridays I generally go both ways. Its much more pleasant...

    I strava all my rides as I too like to track the miles-a friend who follows me saw what I was doing and started commuting himself! My commute has 7 or 8 segments on it and I enjoy working my time...

    Thanks squeeze, I think I will pick up a couple, not for riding though because I am a member of the skin tight aero gang (to my co-workers dismay!).

    Kids are grown, only one still at home-wife does yoga after work, so family is all good! I couldn't have taken this much time (or I would have had to ride faster!) when the kids were younger and had...

    Thanks for all the input, I'm going to give the nine speed a shot, but bike needs some work before it is rideable. I'll report back.

    Kimmo, I assumed your bike was a work in progress given the lack of rear brake, extreme seat angle and what I thought was a primered fork; after reading your description on velospace, I now know...
