A Cold Morning

The commute this morning was, well, cold. I left the house with the outside temperature a balmy 8 degrees F. It’s one of those days where even an insulated water bottle will freeze by the end of the ride, certainly a character building experience. As I’ve become serious about bike commuting over the past three years, I’m increasingly impressed with the viability of a bicycle as a vechicle. Sure, it takes a little longer to get to and from work, but not longer than commuting by car AND going to the gym. Worst case scenario, it takes me two hours to commute both ways by bike versus one hour it would take by car. Factor in another hour for the gym, if I were to drive, and I’m still ahead with the bike, having achieved two hours of exercise in the same total time. Just something for everyone to ponder…
