We picked this baby up from a friend this weekend. I’m excited to get back in the saddle and cruise to work a few days a week. I think I’d bike a lot more if it wasn’t for my fear of cars. Luckily, I think I found a pretty safe route which will keep me clear of most of the traffic congestion. I appreciate this article titled 13 Reasons You Should Start Biking to Work. I really had my heart stuck on this bike by Linus, but we scored mine for $50 so I can’t be too picky!
Also, I thought I’d share about one of my new purchases, my Raven and Lily Yami Backpack which will be great for my morning bike commute. This beautiful backpack empowers women in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. I only wish it was a little bigger and comfortably held my laptop. I can’t wait for our town’s new shopping center to open — we’re going to have a Starbucks and some other great joints and it will be a safe, easy bike trek. Of course I prefer high-quality independent coffee shops, but I’m not complaining!
Do you live in a bike friendly town? Have you ever commuted to work by bike?
