@huima Riding a bike is faster in Toronto…

@huima Riding a bike is faster in Toronto when there’s a walk and then connection/transfer, and traffic is heavy to moderate. Your choice of a Bianchi for commuting reflects (a) you live in an honest country and/or (b) you have secure lockup facilities. I almost always ride my beater — an old Raleigh mountain bike with shopping baskets — that is of low attractiveness to thieves, and I wouldn’t be heartbroken if they did steal that.

    You are right. I have secure lockup facilities in all the places where I drive, and when in doubt – I carry my bike with me to where I go. I used to drive old beaten Kuwahara mountainbike, but driving with much thinner tires and hydraulic brakes makes it much more comfortable and fun than I had thought! Naturally the bike is insured to the full value, but I would be heartbroken as this was probably the last one with the right size in Finland. As my commute will be 17 km – it is important to enjoy driving 😀
