My New Bike Commute

As I’ve previously mentioned, my work is very close to my apartment, only 3/4 of a mile away.  For the past year, I’ve been driving the “commute” morning and evening, as well as to and from at lunchtime.  This is an entirely unneccesary car ride.  I have a functional and lovely bicycle that I’ve really enjoyed riding in the past.  So, from today onwards, I’ll be cycling to and from work unless I have a meeting scheduled at our downtown office. I’m excited for the four .75 mi trips per day; and hopefully I can get at least 3 days of cycling in each week. 

I’ve always found road riding in my normal clothes to a freeing and feminist choice; it connects me with my neighbors and neighboring streets in a more concrete way than being trapped in a box of a car.  Looking forward to growing on the road!
