Hi from Boston!

Hi everyone!

I commute a mere 5 miles a day on my Trek 7000, loaded down with fenders, rack, trunk bag, air zound horn, and a couple blinky lights, through the mean streets of Boston, and the even meaner streets of Cambridge. I recently started riding with a ContourHD camera stuck on my helmet, just to document what goes down. I don't own any Spandex attire.

No spandex? Then you truly are a commuter.

Welcome to BF.

Welcome fellow Bostonian, just joined today!

(PS. The Red Sox are 1st in the AL, so I'm pretty sure they don't suck)
