I Wish My Commute Was Longer
There's something you'll never hear a motorist say... mostly because they feel like the guy over there <== when they get out of the car.
With a commute of just 1.6 miles, I have absolutely no problem with timing it or reacting to traffic issues (I mean, what cyclist does?) but I do wish it was a bit longer so I could enjoy the ride. A couple days ago I commented briefly on how I've reached the point of no return with my commuting - I'm not giving this up for anything. I have less stress, I am outside enjoying myself (heck, I'm even enjoying the rainy and cold rides!), I'm practicing what I preach environmentally, and even though the ride is short I'm getting a brief workout.
I just wish I could ride a little further sometimes. I was just getting my swerve on today when my office creeped up on me and beckoned me within. I was even starting to sweat a bit, something I don't have to do on the way to work much since it's mostly flat or downhill. And it felt GREAT!
Oh well... maybe they'll move our office again...
