MY 18 MILE COMMUTE HAD BEEN STRETCHED INTO 86.6 MILES

It’s true, I actually got to ride to the office today! It was my first commute since the Fall and man did I enjoy it… and take full advantage of it. The ride in was a bit chilli but really refreshing and just long enough to make me want to ride all that much more.

I did get a lot done but the KBC was definitely taunting me throughout the morning. So at lunch time I skipped the food part (I need to do that more often) and spent an hour cruising around. At one point I passed a Nashville music landmark, Cats Music, so I thought I would grab a quick pic.

But the real fun started when my afternoon of work was complete. The reason I love riding to the office is without a doubt the ride home! And today was perfect. I avoided every Interstate and took my time, enjoying a  long detour. By the time I rolled into the driveway, my 18 mile commute had been stretched into 86.6 miles. Ahhhh… I love it!

  2. I know exactly how you feel…a couple of weeks ago a friend and I headed out for a breakfast run, about 120km round trip. We ended up going closer to 500km. Great day to be alive…read about it here: http://faceyman.blogspot.com/2009_04_01_archive.html

    Your pictures are wonderful grist for the mill! My imagination takes a lot more rides than the rest of me, and your blog has turned out to be a fun way to see the roads outside of my neighborhood. Thanks so much for sharing your time and talents. 🙂
