I was in the city the other day. I always say “the city” as if the entire world knows exactly which city I am talking about-New York City, of course. And I bet that right now you are picturing the city in your head, with all of its elegance and dirtiness. Being a Long Island girl, I never really feel at home in the city even though I go there quite frequently. I never can get used to the noise and volumes of people and taxis and buses and city bikes whizzing by.

Naturally, I’ll find that it is better to flock there for work rather than struggling to do so in suburbia. This brings up the matter of having a way to get around in the city since I’ll need a way to quickly get from a job to an apartment, for example. The best way, in my opinion, is making use of a commuter bike to traverse the city for work.
