Day in day out, week after week, I suck it up and ride to work. No Jens Factor, it's just what I do. Before working at Benidorm I would schedule the days I needed my truck around the weather. Now I don't have an excuse. I've found that after some initial anxiety it really isn't too tough. On the worst of days I can still get to or from work in less than an hour. How long does the average American spend in the car commuting to work?
It's like a bank. A commuter bank. I look at every day I ride in as like time in the bank for the days I do want to drive.
It's like a real bank too as operating an automobile gets more and more expensive (duh!).
But this isn't about commuting; this is about today.
After completing 2 of 4 trips across town shuttling students, and running errands, I had a few hours to myself. Beautiful day, in the mid 40s *F and a great friend returned an old friend.
What's more fun than riding a bike you haven't ridden in awhile?
Days like today are like the interest earned on my commuter bank account.
