I rode my bike last night up and down my street about four times. I was trying to get the feel of what to expect from the bike so I don't get myself into trouble with some traffic. Once I get through these next two weeks, I am going to bike commute twice a week. It has not been feasible with the holiday hours as of late. I am really looking forward to riding a lot this winter. It is a whole different experience to say the least. I got my "manvan" on the road and plan on making a rack system that goes in the back area with the seats removed. I am hoping that there is height clearance to make this possible. Enough jib jab for now. I will post some pictures of our wintry conditions soon.
