I did the partial-commute thing today. I parked about 3.5 miles from work, and rode my hybrid bike the rest of the way.
The weather forecast called for a chance of rain in the morning, and a greater chance in the afternoon.
The ride in was nice, except a mild headwind. No rain, warmer temperatures. The ride back to the car was slightly nicer, the wind was at my back.
I’ve been beating myself up a bit over not riding enough. I guess if I can just manage to get on the bike some November through March, then it’ll be fine. I’m not going to buy studded snow tires for the rare occasion I’d need them, I’ll just drive. I’ll try to avoid riding in the rain when it’s cold. I do have raingear, in case I get caught in it.
I have wanted to do more upper body workout stuff, and core strengthening, so less riding should mean more time and energy to work on that.
