So, the reason why Tuesday and Thursday has ended up being a bit, well, posting-light, is because I'm biking to work then. ~17.5 miles, one-way. Most of the journey is on a bike trail, well away from traffic. Breathe easy, mom, no reason to worry there. The rest is extremely laid back residential roads. We're talking sleepy subdivision streets. All right up until the end, when I drive down into a bowl and then have to drive myself back out, all at once. Big honking hill, literally just before I arrive.
But I'm finally able to regularly ride a good, long distance without missing out on spending time with Ellen or Olivia. Hell, Ellen's encouraging me to add a third day. Plus, the reaction of a team of good, strong nerd stock to a bit of spindly high-spun bicycle engineering (I park it right next to my cube) is a sight to behold.
