After the birth of our second child last month, my wife has been staying home with her and I've been DRIVING our son to day care. His day care center is in Dublin, up near my wife's office. So, as you've picked up from a couple of my "Prisoner of the Slave-Mobile" posts, I've been car bound. And it truly is a cage.
But no more! I rode my bike in today because my wife wanted to see how it was going to work bringing both kids into day care, and with my brother-in-law visiting after his tour in Iraq (welcome home, Andrew!) he was more than happy to support her while she tried to get this done. So I got to ride.
It was dark and rainy and is going to be all day, but I was happy as a clam in my rain cape as I made my way to the office.
My Cygolite Nite Rover headlight was the big surprise. I haven't had to use it in quite a while (and hadn't been keeping up with keeping it charged), but the charge in the battery was still good after probably three months of sitting dormant! More props to this item.
People, not speed.
