Oppo, I bought a bicycle

I bought a 2011 Trek Cobia. I'm hoping to get my ass back into shape again with biking, backpacking, and playing hockey in the winter. Turning 25 is seriously the best thing that's happened to me. I finally have money to do the things I want to. I can throw the bike into the back of my Subaru wagon or throw it on the hitch rack. I currently drive 26 miles to work each way and I'm hoping to start parking and then riding into work the rest of the way. We have lockers and showers, and my 2 bosses are avid bikers and said they'd be fine with me doing so as long as I clean up. I'm hoping to start riding the last 5 miles (and back to my car after work) and eventually work up to 10-15 miles.
