I had my first true taste of "underbiking" over lunch today.  For those that aren't familiar with the term, it typically refers to a riding an off road trail with a road bike.  The trails are typically of the type that anyone with a mountain bike would be bored, but they can take on a whole new dimension when ridden with a road bike.  I wouldn't recommend you try this type of riding with your carbon time trial bike!

Anyways, we took a spin over lunch and explored some paths around a local reservoir.  It was fun and gave us a chance to enjoy a different type of riding.  All told, we probably spent 45 minutes in the woods, not a bad way to segment your work day.  I'm not likely to do this on a regular basis, but certainly would be willing to try it again at some point.
