Bicycle weather - let's ride!

All this sunshine and non-freezing spring weather has got me thinking about trying to ride a bike to work this summer. I don't have and haven't ridden a bike in too many years to say, but I'm pondering the possibility.

Most of my research has been steered in the direction of purchasing a 'commuter' or 'hybrid' bike. I've seen the prices rages from anywhere from $500.00 to a friend's lucky find at a garage sale for fifty bucks. These bikes are built for hills, comfort and making it possible to arrive at work greenly as well as not being super sweaty.

If you have any suggestions on the bike quest and all the possibility's it offers, drop me a line and help me out. I'm looking for a mid-range, possibly used, either a 17 or 18 inch size, and a not too big price tag too. Thanks.

Gosh--I rode my 10 speed all over the place. And then suddenly quit.


The thought of climbing back on it scares me.
