Bicycle commuting, day 9

Tuesday, June 07, 2011

Well, I'm still at it.

Today I rode one way, because I had an afternoon appointment back in Bethesda. It seems like this is starting to become routine. I don't even have any mishaps to report today. It was just a very pleasant ride. Apart from this past year, when it wouldn't have been practical, I wonder what took me so long to decide to do this. Ten miles isn't even that long of a ride, one-way, compared to some of the stuff I've done before. Even the heat hasn't bothered me up to this point. I've had a Camelbak for some time, but I just started using it. I barely notice it on my back, and it keeps my water cold and very accessible so I can take quick sips whenever I need to.

I have biked for 3 consecutive days now. Tomorrow will be a day of forced rest, because I have to take my daughter to her orthodontist. We may have a heat wave as well. Hoping for better luck Thursday!

    I have really enjoyed reading your biking blogs. I admit I am a little envious. I want a bike so much, but it is just not feasible financially right now. Reading your blogs made me want one even more. Especially since I will be starting a new part time job next week and could easily bike to it (it is about 1.75 miles one way) Biking would not only be healthier, it would save on gas money.
