What Kinda Bike Is That?

When people make a comment like, "Wow, using the bike, you must be saving a lot of money on gas."
I laugh and respond, "No. When I am not riding, due to Winter conditions, and I want a cup of coffee, I jump in the van and drive the 5 mins to our local Mobil On-The-Run gas station. When it's riding season and I want a cup of coffee; that's a trip to Camden 1 1/2 hrs away. A rider will think of any excuse to make the trip longer."
Looks like a nice commute!!!!
