We just recently got a new job in Berkeley that's too far from the house to walk. Plus, since we took a substantial pay cut to work at the new place, losing even more money to parking or taking the bus (which would take two buses and an awfully long time) was not a viable option. But then it struck us -- we could ride our bike to work! It would be just far enough to get a decent daily workout without tiring us out, and we could be part of that whole one-less-car thing!
