Diana Says: This bike is my love. When I moved to Chicago, I had hybrid mountain bike that was about 6 inches too small for me. I was a bike novice, but I knew I could bike faster than public transit (usually). I didn't have a car so I trekked many miles on that old mountain bike. I had no idea riding a bike could be so easy and fun until my friend's uncle built me this road bike.
Biking winter was a challenge for me at first. My first winter I had the mountain bike and no endurance. My goal was a small 25% of the winter. Last winter, with my new bike, and a lot more endurance, (and still a U-pass) my goal was 60%. This winter my goal is 90%! I love riding, but I don't ride when it's too dangerous. My favorite thing is cruising past all the cars stuck in traffic!
