Yesterday, this little beauty was my mode of transportation for getting to work. I’ve been wanting to ride in since getting my new bike a few weeks ago, but either the weather has been bad, I’ve had tons of stuff to take with me, or meetings all over town, or something that has kept me from commuting on two wheels.
Yesterday I still was feeling sick, but figured it was going to be a decent day, so I just bit the bullet and did it. All in all, I rode down to the office, then out to Riverfront park before heading to meet an old friend at Starbucks, and then back home at the end of the day. Not really a long ride — logging less than 10 miles total for the day. Yesterday, I was one of those geeky guys on a bike, helmet and all.
Riding my bike has really become preferred method of exercise. If it’s nice out (or even a little not-so-nice) and I’ve got some time, I would much rather go for a ride than get on the treadmill. I’m still a little concerned about the image from behind the bike for those that are following me, but hopefully before long I can reduce the ‘golf ball on a tee’ look that I currently represent. I’m not sure how many days I’ll get to ride down to the office (you can’t carry your clubs on a bike very easy, you know) but I’m going to shoot for at least 2-3, especially as the weather gets nice.
