Location: Cuneo, Italy
Started bike commuting: 2009
Commute distance (one way): 3 Km twice a week, 10 Km once a week
Describe your commute: Urban local cycle-path commute twice a week; otherwise along suburban roads with less or no traffic. Sometimes I commute bike+train to Turin (90 Km by train and 5 by bike).
Describe your bike and accessories: Specialized Tricross Sport fitted with 37 mm large Schwalbe Maraton tires, mudguards (SKS Bluemell), Tubus Cargo rear carrier and Brooks B-17 saddle. When I commute I store my job utility in a Carradice Camper longflap useful also in light rides with family during the weekend. Other panniers are used for longer rides.
What bit of advice would you like to share with new bike commuters?: Commute by bike slowly and appreciate every smells, every colors and every songs; your day will be better.
