I don’t ride my bike to work often enough anymore. I did ride Friday though.
I headed out in the morning to decent temperatures and wet roads. I rolled a pleasant route through Cherokee Park, stopping for a picture at Hogan’s Fountain.
I was quite slow. I’m not a morning person, and I’ve gained too much weight. I pushed through and was glad I rode.
I have a shower at work, so I used it. Although I’ve been bike commuting for years no, this is the first job where I had easy access to a shower. It’s quite nice. I’d trade it for a shorter commute though.
While at work, I took a selfie with a robot – because “why not?”
It was Friday, so of course I’ve gotta have some beer after work. Diane agreed to meet me at Apocalypse. I rode much faster in the afternoon. The warmer temperatures helped. It wasn’t morning, that helped too. The promise of beer probably had a bit to do with it too. I set three PRs on Strava on the way to Apocalypse. I felt like a cyclist again.
We were puppy-sitting last week. Diane brought Baxter (her dog) and Sophie (the temporary dog) along. Sophie is adorable, even when trying to steal beer.
I limited myself to three beers then rode home. Sophie was picked up and went home a few hours later. I’ll miss the cute puppy, but not cleaning up after her.
32 miles for the day just for commuting. I’ll take it.
