Well, today will certainly be remembered as one of the more interesting commutes. It was my 18th commute this month and this month happened to be the first time I broke through the 700miles/month barrier. Perhaps it was in celebration of these accomplishments that caused it to be one of the most hectic days at work I've ever had. I didn't get left until 8:30pm, which, for those of us on the far edge of the East coast, means dusk is quickly approaching. Having not expected to be leaving so late, I didn't bring a bike light. After hunting around the department for a while, I found a flashlight and managed to rubber-band it to my handlebars. Fortunately, I had just left a couple of blinkers on the back, so I at least had taillights. All told, the ride was pretty good. The temperature was great, the sky was clear, but the bugs were horrible. Next time I ride at this time of night, I want to be wearing ski goggles!
