Our house is located less than 5 minutes from the studio. This morning, it took me 45 minutes to get from point A (house) to point B (studio). At least three to four mornings a week it takes me 45 minutes to an hour to get to the studio. I.hate.it.
The bike I currently have is a beautiful 1978 Raleigh road bike. The thin tires are not so good for riding the brick streets of Pittsburgh, though (and the gears need some serious TLC). So... I want a new bike. Specifically, this Bianchi Milano series bike. If I rode to work, it would likely take me not much more than 10 minutes. Ten refreshing traffic free minutes.
