Getting to bike commute again

This week I got to commute to work via bike for the first time this year. I managed it a few times last year, but this year it just didn’t seem to be in the cards most weeks. I love the idea of biking to work for a few reasons.

  • It’s a great workout, and starting your day with physical activity just seems to make everything go better.
  • The morning can be a beautiful time to be out and biking. The pic above was from crossing the Mississippi at 694. All the people on the interstate missed that view.
  • It’s better for the environment, and it’s easy to find parking.
  • Traffic isn’t a big issue (though construction still stinks).
  • Despite being tired, the ride home is still good for me and I burn off a few more calories from lunch.

Only one of my offices is really close enough for me to bike, so I need to really try to take advantage of it when I can. Hopefully there will be a few more opportunities this year to get out there and pedal my way to work.
