I guess I got the idea to bike to work a few months back. The summer weather here in Reno is nice and spring/fall aren't half bad either. I only live about four miles away from work, so it's about 15 -20 minute commute which is actually about the same as when I drive. Then there are the health benefits. I can definitely be more active and lose a few pounds. So it just kind of made sense.
I decided bought an eBike (flx bike) due to the killer hill I have to go up to get home. The nice thing about a pedal assist eBike is I can dial it back if I want to get more of a work out, or dial it up if it's been a long day. It took about 4 weeks for the bike to arrive, which isn't too bad considering it came all the way from China.
This is the first week that I have been commuting, and so far loving it! At first it took a bit to get used to. The last time I rode a bike was going on 14 years. I am looking forward to a few more weeks (hopefully longer) before the winter weather starts to set in.
