    Wish me good luck with my new commute route..

    Hi, my workplace shift to a new location soon and my commute will increase from present one trip of 5miles to future of 14miles.

    I hope I can commute every working day except foul weather.

    Wish me good luck for new commute route , friends!

    (And at the same time, I can close my chapter of my old commute route of 3 years with 100% accident free. )

    Hope you enjoy the new, longer commute. Since you've been doing the 5mi regularly, the challenge will most likely be the additional time commitment more than the increased physical effort. And here's to many more years of safe riding!

    Thanks for all the well wish.

    The things I am more worried with be whether the commute will be to gruelling to drain up all my energy and the hazard of heavy traffic.

    Will update you of my new experience once I started it.

    Hi guys, I have already started by long commute to work for a week.

    The route is definitely not easy and quite exhausting but at the same time, I think I can easily burn fats and get a tone body in a month time if I can maintain commuting often.

    I need to climb 3 hills before I reach my workplace and traffic is a little heavy and hazardrous on the toward trip of 14miles.( Now I clock 28 - 30 miles per day)

    The return trip will be met with heavy traffic and I will say, I enjoy going to work trip more than coming back. But one good thing abt coming back is I can slow to manageable pace for a relax ride.

    So far , I can say I enjoy my new commute route and I hope I can get a tone body soon.

    So you ride when typhoon or tornado coming or super heavy rain?

    Defintiely I am not talking abt drizzling.

    As long as anybody takes up commuting , reduce CO2 emission. I will salute him.

    I don't care he is the so called less commuter or fake commuter just becos he refuse to ride in a big rain as he don't want to be late for his work.

    I find yr comment stupid and insult to all commuters. And I find you stupid too. Keep this kind of comment in yr Ass cos its crap.

    If you think you are some high horse as a real commuter. You shall go get a Mercede E-class car instead of commuting in bicycle. If will really suit yr status since you have so many classification of things....

    You are wasting yr time in this commuter thread.

    Oops!! Sorry super elite, I don't know you got a BMW instead of Mercs

    You are a superior being among us mortal commuter. You are the 'REAL' deal of commuter. When you ride pass us, we mortal shall slow down and salute you cos you are the 'Real' commuter. King of all cyclist. You are able to ride on foul weather and those not able to do so are less superior compare to you and in yr eyes, less commuter or can't even to be called commuter. Riding a bicycle to work instead of driving is still not enough to make you a commuter. We must go thru yr judgement before can be called a 'REAL' commuter.

    (Oops.. Sorry to burst yr bubble. I am just describing of yr fantasy dreams.)

    In time

    you may ID parallel routes with less traffic or hazards. You can always throw in a bus bridge on the iffy days or do what i do sometimes and leave my bike @ work over night and ride home the next afternoon. Anyway you have options, you just gotta find um.
