“I’ve been entertaining this idea that I might like to start commuting to work by bicycle. I work fairly long hours and I love seeing daylight in the mornings and evenings; additionally, I’d love to incorporate more exercise into my everyday life.
However, a few things are getting in my way. One, I am not familiar with bike-riding in the city and after reading RRRR, I’m terrified I’ll be killed by a rogue car. Two, I live in Park View and work in Crystal City. I mapped the commute and it’s about 7 miles, including crossing the Potomac. For someone who is fairly out of shape, this seems rather daunting.
Does anyone out there have any advice on how to start this kind of lifestyle change?”
“Any suggestions for local half marathons or ten milers that accommodate walkers? I currently can’t run due to health issues but would love to work towards a spring weather challenging walk….for charity or otherwise.”
