Urban Cycling / Re: commuting by bike
« on: July 26, 2012, 03:59:24 pm »
I have been commuting to work via train and bicycle since March of this year. I ride 2 miles from my home to the VRE (Virginia Railway Express), ride about 40-45 minutes on the train and then get off and ride 7 miles to work. It is working out very well and averages 2 hours door to door including a shower before starting work. I wasn't going to take this new job unless I could stay off I-95 and so far this is great. I average about 100 miles a week riding 5 days as I have time to add a couple of miles going back to the train in the evening. Wx will not be an issue for me as staying off the interstate is a much bigger motivator to ride every day.
I commute using a 2012 Trek 520 with Planet Bike Hybred fenders, Ortleib rear panniers and a Topeak Rack bag.
