    I’ve been regularly biking to work since April of 2008. I love it. I started as a way to save a little money when the gas prices started shooting through the roof, but even after they dropped, I felt no desire to drive. My son rides home with me in the afternoons, and he enjoys the ride in the kid seat. The winters here are not too bad. I can wear my work attire and not break a sweat. In the summer months, I look a little silly: t-shirt, khaki shorts, and dress socks and shoes. Sometimes I have four colors going. I’m an eye-sore, but drivers don’t hit me. I wear a helmet as well, for protection and to deflect the fog of Texan gnats that stick to me like Velcro.Report
