      Lol. I know. He's probably all decked out like Lance Armstrong too.

      F I hate those guys. Remember we used to bike and skateboard in jeans and sandals. But now older we need spandex and high end gear

      Lol. So true. There’s a guy on my team who bikes a few miles away and shows up looking like A pro bike racer who left it all out on the field. Nothing like seeing a massive Ghee-generated bot belly in spandex.

      Don’t get me wrong. I’m not one to mock someone trying to exercise. But still...it’s overkill. The gear doesn’t make the athlete.

      Ghee has contributed to my waist line. Gotta respect the source.

    Beware of newly imported wives practicing their car driving skills on Sunnyvale roads.

    Too much risk to life.

      Enuf a$$holes already why bch about the imported ones?

      Because the non-imported ones generally grew up learning how to drive as teenagers.

      Well, whenever that guy/gal takes someone down it won’t matter which passport he/she bears.
      An a$$hole is what an a$$hole does.

    You’ll be fine! LinkedIn has really good programs for bikers. And for days you can’t bike, they will help you with alternatives - Scoop / Lyft

    Exercising in open traffic? Not wise.

    Winter chills include surviving the freezing 50 degree weather in the morning

    I strongly suggest disc brakes and a decent cycling rain jacket for the winter. Realistically though, it's the bay area, and a short ride, you'll be fine. Watch out for train tracks and other wet metal in the rain as those are slippery AF. Wear a helmet at all times, and get good bike lights. Check out go/commutebybike for more resources.

    Finally, if you really can't ride, there's also scoop, which is free for LI riders.

      Disc brakes are a myth for bikes. I believed so too but after some research became wiser.

    Uhh...helmet, reflectors, and bike lamp. Try and avoid busy streets. That’s pretty much it. During winter it gets dark early before some people leave work, so I would take off during daylight hours.

    Just be thankful you don’t have to deal with Seattle winter and bike your ass off.

    Wear a helmet, stay in the damn bike lanes as far over towards the sidewalk as you can, and obey traffic laws as if you were a car.
