Occasionally, I have to work on Saturdays. I don’t mind it most of the time. The commute is generally quieter, so I find I enjoy riding in more.
Some thoughts that crossed my mind as I rode into work:
-It took me 56 minutes from door to door today. So I hate to say it, but I think it’s the bike.
-I’m thinking of ditching my dual-sided clipless pedals on my commuter bike. I find it annoying to be constantly clipping and unclipping at the numerous traffic lights.
-I’m really loving my Arkel Switchback. In addition to my usual haul that I had described in my previous post, I’ve discovered that I can carry a set of work clothes as well. However, my lunch bag doesn’t quite fit as comfortably, so I need to work around that.
-My new (to me) route that I take to work is more enjoyable. It’s fairly calm, even on weekdays, and only moderately hilly. It’s not as direct as the route I usually take, but I think it’s worth it. I’m not as sweaty and tired as I usually am.
-I am going to hit 1000 miles for the year this evening. That’s 4 months earlier than last year. wow.
Hope you’re having a great day. It’s really nice outside here.
