I’m a Novice Commuter

Ride your bike to work day I have been cycling around 15 years and I feel like a novice commuter.  I probably spent 15 minutes trying to figure out what to wear and how to go about doing it.  I ended up wearing my cycling clothes (short sleeve, long sleeve, windbreaker, gloves, and shorts) and putting all my work cloths into my backpack.  

I headed out around 8:00 the temp was in the 50’s or so.  I didn’t see one other person on a bike.  I pulled up in the Grab a Java drive threw for the free small coffee that they were giving away to cyclist.  She even threw in a free coffee coupon. Grab a Java Rocks! (damn the Star Bucks).

It was then just a short jaunt to my office.  I totaled 4 miles in 15 minutes (That included my coffee stop.)

I must commend people that do this on a daily basis.  Whether they are doing it to save the planet, or save on the gas bill.

I really should do this more often.  I might make it a Friday thing.

I will need a coffee cup holder though…
