I rode my bicycle to work today.  It’s only about 2 miles or so, much of it on a nice footpath that starts almost at my front door.   A few problems hold me back from making this a regular occurrence.

  1. Work’s dress code.   Nice clothes, dirt footpaths, and bicycle chains are a recipe for disaster.   Plus, I start to overheat the minute my ass hits my office chair.
  2. Weather.  #1 is compounded by the narrow range of weather that is pleasant to ride in.   It’s now pretty brisk/damp in the morning, and it’s only going to get worse.  Oh, yeah…  it also apparently rains here every once and a while.
  3. Daylight.  I didn’t use my eyes to navigate home, I used the Force.   It’s now pitch black around 5pm.
  4. Lunch.  I really enjoy coming home to see my lovely wife at lunch time.  It really helps break up the day.

I do intend to ride more… but for now commuting will remain a motorized affair.
