I've test-ridden the route and it's 16-miles round trip (one-hour total riding time). And since I live in a desert (it rains very infrequently), I can do this just about every day of the year. Of course, my office hasn't opened up yet; I'm scheduled to go back in early Sept., but I'm looking forward to this.

I tell you, if we had bike valets for my gym and grocery stores, I would pay for that and use my bike more. Locking my bike up on a rack doesn't work in LA - too many bike thefts...

The opposite of what happened to most people. They gained weight.

This is the first summer in 12 years I have only road maybe three times? I road every day previously. But I hated it! Hate this time of year!

Glad to hear it worked out.
