Cheers Anquetil, you won the Tour the year I was born.

Who knew years later I would be riding the Gitane just to get to work at the drug store.

I have been a bicycle commuter since 1969 when I started riding to school on a small blue English single speed with a rack and fenders.

Why give up what you started in 1969?

26" Comfort bike
Description:  I bought this bike new from REI in Spring 2006 to use as bait to try to lure other people of all ages and cycling experince into giving bicycle commuting a try. I am currently trying to work out the details on a program I'm calling "The Commuter Cycling Century" that would encourage people to bike to work on at least 100 days in a 12 month period.

Lifetime Odometer: 2,871.8 miles

26" Comfort bike
Description:  This bike was bought for only $29 at Target on closeout, it almost made me cry to see any bike priced that low. It reminds me alot of my old Typhoon and is fun to ride with a child seat on the back for my son Ben.

XC Mountain bike
Description:  The bike began as a mountain bike and over the years became sort of a commuter hybrid. The bike has a rear rack, full fenders from Bike Planet, a basket attached to the rack for my brief case, and a basic computer. This bike has fallen into limbo because of the new Novara Transfer.

Lifetime Odometer: 92.7 miles
