I’m starting to get excited. Soon, I’ll surpass the “100” mark. 100 rides to work. Wow, it feels like I started this challenge just the other day. I can’ t wait to crack triple digits!
The up sides to riding my bike to work FAR outweigh the down sides. I know for a fact that I’m more productive at work because my mind is much sharper when I walk through the front door after my ride and I’m not burning fossil fuels in any way, which is a big plus! The single biggest downside is the amount of times I have to change everyday. Take today for example:
I get out of bed, put on clothes, and walk the dogs.
I finish walking the dogs, have a shower, and change into my cycling clothes.
I cycle to work, and change into my work clothes.
I cycle to the gym at lunch to play squash, I change into my gym strip.
I finish my squash match, have a shower, and change into the cycling clothes again.
I bike back to work, and change back into my work clothes.
I finish my workday, change back into my cycling clothes, and head home.
I get home, and change into jeans and a t-shirt.
That’s a lot of changing. Some days I feel like I spend all day changing.
