Did you ride your bike to work today?
You might remember that last May I was very participatory in National Bike Month.
I took the opportunity to really get into the groove of biking to work in efforts to save a little on gas, burn a few extra calories, and really just enjoy the 2 mile commute to work in the open fresh air.
Besides my random biking adventure a few weeks ago, Sea Breeze has not been taken out for a ride. And that I am ashamed of.
It’s National Bike month for godsake, and the month is practically over. What am I waiting for?
Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that the green belt still looks like this.
Nice and flooded in many of the parts that happen to be on my route to work. Nice.
But that is no excuse to miss “Bike to Work day”. No excuse indeed.
So I followed my own commuting tips and geared up for my first bike to work adventure of the year. Yippee!!
So I packed my work clothes last night, making sure to include extra make-up for a touch-up at work, some deodorant, and a hair brush. I was was also happy to remember that I already have lunch plans with friends, so trying to pack a lunch as well, was not needed this time around.
And I got up an extra half hour early, so I could account for any obstacles *ahem flooded river paths* along the way.
And Sea breeze and I were off!
The commute by bike seemed to rejuvenate me, like that of a cup of joe. But I felt more refreshed and more alert as I walked into the office this morning.
It’s funny how easily I forgot how freaking awesome it is to ride my bike to work.
I know it’s not possible for everyone to take part in this Bike to work adventure, but again I encourage you all to try and make one change in your commute next week.
See if you can walk to the store instead of drive. Or bike to dinner instead of drive.
Biking to work was a success! And I will be doing this a lot more often this summer. It honestly only took a few extra minutes in my commute.
It does take a little extra prep, but it’s totally worth it!
