Started commuting again after 2.5 years!

Well, I started commuting daily after 2.5 years and two job transitions. Since I no longer have to go door-to-door to businesses in Tucson weather wearing business attire, I'm able to ride in to work. It's a simple ~4 mile ride, takes me about 20 minutes in traffic, and feels amazing. Work lets me keep my ride (Xtracycle) in the break room -- everything is great!

I'll be going through another job change in a few months. I hope I'm able to keep this up!

Glad to hear it. There's always room for one more in this community.

Let's hope the future job changes do allow you to keep up bicycle commuting.
