    After 3+ years of no commuting, I'm getting back in the game!

    3 years ago, I got hit pretty hard on a daily commute home, and it really threw me for a loop mentally. I didn't want to ride, and whenever I tried to, I would freak out.

    Well, then I changed jobs that would be 40 miles each way. And my office moved to where I was commuting 90 miles each way (company car, company gas. No complaints from me.)

    I just quit. I'm starting my own company. So I've taken a night job at the local university to help supplement my start up income, and since we've been a single car family for the last 4 years, it means I get to bike commute again.

    It's 8.2 miles each way, and should be mainly residential arterial streets and wide shouldered thoroughfares. I'm really looking forward to it!

    Hi TnF, welcome back! 8 miles is a nice distance.

    Make sure to share your experiences in the daily commute thread!

    Good to see you back. I wondered where you went. So are you in Texas or Florida now? Did you ever do your coast to coast ride or was that scheduled after you got hit?

    Thank you sirs!

    I never had the opportunity to do the coast to coast ride. I got into the accident before hand, but I did ride SAG and got to spend a lot of time with some good friends.

    Really looking forward to getting everything together and getting back after it.
