With soaring gas prices, I am considering buying a bike and riding to work. It would be about 7 miles. My main concerns are the extra time required and safety. Does anyone know how long it would take? The road I would take is mostly flat and I would have a 4-way stop and a 3-way stop to go through. The speed limit for cars is 55 MPH and there is one place where there is an underpass that goes under the railroad. Any comments or suggestions? Anyone else ever done this?
