In 1994, I started using my old Schwinn Collegiate to commute 9.5 miles each way to work. When I moved back out to the suburbs in 1995, I continued to commute in fair weather to the train station. In 2001, I joined the Schaumburg Bicycle Club and got educated to expand my cycling beyond commuting and things snowballed from there with more than 3 quaters of my lifetime riding having taken place in that time.
