Thanks for all the input. I could start now from a mileage viewpoint. There is a closed grocery store 3 miles from work, the next good place to park the car is 5 or 6.5 miles from work (depends on the route I take). However, I don't have a tool kit or frame pump for the bike yet, or a place to park it at work and there is no public transit backup for my commute (the joy of suburb to suburb commuting).

So...I will be doing 10 miles in the morning and 4 miles in the evening while I get the other things lined up. I'm also taking the EC course next month and hoping that will help prepare me for the leap into traffic.

Oh yeah, air quality. I've found a web site that lists the hour by hour readings and, at least for Atlanta, also has a graph. I don't have the link on my home PC, but will post it on Monday. I've added it to my local home page (next to the radar picture) so I can see at glance what the Air Quality Index (AQI) is.
