Just picked up my new bike:

I am SO going to enjoy this thing

Are you going to be riding that to work?

Bikes with motors are for people over 40, when that mid-life crisis really starts sinking in

If I wanted to ride to work each day I'd have to a) get a lot fitter fast or b) change jobs.
One way it's a 100 kilometer cummute from door to door :)

40? I'm not sure I can remember that far back.

It's closing in faster and faster every day for me
I still have 30 to look forward to first, though.

I'm more than 5/8 of a century old and I bike to work. Here's the bike I ride: http://www.bikes.com/main+en+01_102+METRO_50_V.html?BIKE=576&CATID=3&SCATID=28&Y=2009. (It's not true that it has no motor, the motor is posting on a web forum just at the moment.)

Although it's only 12 kilometres each way... 100 km would be way out of the question.

If I could bike to work I'd like to think I would as well, that's really a great way to stay sharp, stick with it!

Where do you plan to ride your new bike?

My home town, mostly. Lots of woodland in this area and some MTB trails.
Alternatively I could ride up to visit my family, which is doable at 45 kilometers.
Or I could throw my bike in my car and drive up to where ever I like to ride
