Creative hardworker.

Jack of all trades, master of none, though often better than master of one.

I commute 36 km daily with my inexpensive bicycle which I also enjoy maintaining.

My favorite gear includes:

  • Schwalbe Marathon Plus & Marathon Winter tires
  • Ortlieb Office-Bag L QL2 pannier
  • Sigma BC 1009 speedometer
  • Shimano SH-MT33L shoes
  • Shimano PD-M324 pedals

comment How would the “pros” bike this commute?
+1 for you might fall into the trap of thinking that the route you're used to is the only route available - so true! My commute by car is 21 km in the most jammed traffic. My commute by bike is 18 km, of which almost half is lovely forest trails :-)
