I feel healthier and it helps with the stress of the job.
You LIVE in Santa Barbara!!! I'm so jealous.

I would either 1. change to longer route, or 2. move, or 3. not bike commute. 1.5 miles of traffic going 40 a few inches from you without escape routs is too scarey. It's not worth it. Separate commuting and biking.

Born and raised.

It was 80 a few days ago.

P.S. I'm not a millionaire and I don't own a house and probably never will.
