Well, after all these years of talking myself out of it, I slipped once early this morning and talked myself into riding my bicycle to work.
I packed a change of clothes, a couple wash cloths, and my study books into my backpack. Away I went! I actually saw a few bike commuters on the way. One was a lady turning southbound onto 53 from the Denville Train Station, another was cruising northbound on 53 towards Morristown. I guess riding a bike to work isn’t as odd as I once thought.
This being my first time and all, I actually arrived way too early. My normal 15 – 20 minute drive into work took just over 30 minutes. I was at work at 7:20 this morning. My normal start time is 8:30. Well, I changed into my work clothes, had some water, powered up the slow one (T42 running Vista Business…bad combo) and cooled off for a few minutes. I then walked over to DD’s for a large iced coffee with the special .99 egg and cheese on a biscuit.
This is the first of many, I hope. Maybe this will turn into a lifestyle.
Check out one of my daily reads. Noah is a KC bike commuter. Not sure how I stumbled on his blog, but I’ve been reading it for about a year. Great photos, and this dude inspired me to get off my fat butt, and got onto the saddle.
