I started biking to cut down monthly expense. Using bike is good to discover and explore new areas, but it's not easy.
Toronto, there are some up and down hills, so when I go to school or downtown from my place, even though it takes a long time, it is alright, but when I go home from somewhere, it's hard and tiring because of up hills.
Another thing I felt difficulty to use a bike is traffic on the road. Cars are scary. There are good drivers, but there are bad drivers as well. I attempt to choose cycling routes or not main roads to avoid scary cars.

Opera Atelier where I work as a volunteer is located downtown and it is pretty far from my house. However, I still go there by my bike.
Still I can't remember the route, so I bring my notes every time and check the name of the street. I am lost at least once when I go there. I have a android cell phone, so sometimes its GPS helps me, but not always.
It takes 1 hour and 10 minutes to get Opera Atelier and it takes 1 hour and 15 or 20 minutes to get home. When I came home, I changed the route in order to find the best route several times. Sometimes it took more than 2 hours to get home because I tried to use mountain trail and enter mountains and I was lost several times. Mountain trail is safer, but it takes a long time to get home.

I don't like biking downtown, but I bike downtown.
