I’m not a bike commuter. My one-way ride to work is 30 miles, and it just wouldn’t be practical, especially in the high-90s temps we continue to have in central Texas. But in more temperate climes, commuting is on the upswing. It’s apparently gotten so popular in Minneapolis that people are complaining about too many bikes on the roads, according to this article from the Minneapolis Star-Tribune.
“More temperate” may be too kind. I lived in Minneapolis for 12 years, and while the summers are great there, I wouldn’t care to bike commute from about October to April. But maybe I’ve just become a weather wuss since moving down south.
