Default Re: First work week commuting on my new bike.

i plan to ride one of mine to work a few times before long, my ride to work is 32 miles round trip so its not a hop skip and jump kinda ride, but I've done it several times.

since its such a long ride I always take weather conditions strongly into consideration, out of all those miles only about 7 of them have a shoulder I can ride on and the rest im pushed against the curb or running with traffic and it dark when i ride home at 6am.

since my bikes that i ride into town will do 40+ mph i can make fairly good time and run with traffic once i get into town.

Im looking forward to a few nice rides to town this year.
I dont always ride WOT, but when I do..I do my best to keep the rubber side down..Ride safely my friends!
