Urban Cycling / commuting by bike

I bike in every workday, 32 miles roundtrip, unless there is more than 3" of snow, or lightning (which I can wait out).

I live in the Washington, D.C. area, and personally, I think it's a good place to bike due to the bike path system that travels in Maryland, D.C. and Virginia.

General Discussion / Bike Friday Touring Bikes????

I have a Bike Friday Pocket Pilot that I bought a year and a half ago.  Out of the 3 other bikes I own, I like the Bike Friday the best.  It rides and handles just like a regular bike - though with the smaller wheels, you have a better turning radius, and you can also draft off people a bit more closely - which comes in handy on windy days! :)  I had decided to get a Bike Friday because I was tired of paying the high airline fee for bringing my other boxed bike on the plane - the fee is now $300 roundtrip!  The Bike Friday pays for itself in just a handful of trips.  I haven't bought the trailer accessory yet, but probably will in the future.  Right now, it works just to be able to fold up the bike and put it in the suitcase.  I have traveled on 3 trips so far with the bike and it has done excellent in the hard suitcase you buy with it.  I have left the suitcase at my originating location and picked it up at the end of the trip.  It doesn't take long to fold/unfold the bike.  I would recommend the Bike Friday bike to anyone. :) :)
