Even though I bike to the same office at the same time day after day, my commute rarely feels stale. Either the city throws something new my way or I take it upon myself to try something new. Today my bike commute was a mix of both. I enjoyed fresh air, fresh bike lanes, fresh cupcakes and a fresh route.
The cool breeze made it comfortable to bike in my work clothes for a change. It was nice to go straight to my office without stopping by the bathroom to change.
Along the way, I noticed that the bike lanes along a large section of my route were freshened up with new paint and decals. They are much more noticeable now. Turns out, the Alderman re-striped all the bike lanes in his ward by making the project a budget priority. Nice!
On my way home, the siren song of Sweet Mandy B’s lured me. I just had to stop to get a cupcake. Or two. They did not last long.
After my massive sugar consumption, I continued my ride on super quiet side streets. I’ve been experimenting with a complicated route of small streets the entire way to and from work. More on this new route soon.
See? Never a dull moment. My life is full of action and adventure. :)
Anything new and fresh going on with your bike commute?
