I’ve always wanted to participate in bike to work day even before I owned a bike. Today, my opportunity finally came. I have my bike (the “Diva”) and no plans that might interfere with my special commute.
Work is about 3 or 4 miles from my house; it isn’t that far. However, it was much more of a workout than I anticipated. You see, my bike – my beach bike cruiser – is a single speed. After a little while, any uphills require a great deal of effort. Thus, I’m a little tired and I’m thinkin’ that I’ll be feelin’ the ‘ol hamstrings tomorrow.
Also, I need to work on my basket which, during my commute, lowered itself and ejected my shoes into a pile of sand. Grr. I hope no one saw that … Once upon a time, I had a better basket. It was on my prior bike (mountain-esque bike) that was stolen from my garage – in part. They did leave my basket. How thoughtful. So, when I got the Diva, I put my old basket on it and then someone came along and stole that! Last weekend, in desperate need of a basket, I got a basket from Target. I guess need to make some adjustments before the ride home. Can’t win ‘em all.
Biking is nice change of pace and a good workout. I hope today’s adventure inspires me to bike into the office a couple days a month.
Do you bike to work or does your town have a bike to work day?
