People always ask me, so jonny, you been riding?
It’s like this: I’ve been riding to work these last few weeks. This is the third week. Missed one day in the second week, but that happens sometimes. Even with the one miss, this is more saddle time than I’ve been able to enjoy in quite some time now.
It’s a bit of a pain in my ass, to be honest. Good thing the ride to work part is the high point of my entire day. It’s more fun than the ride home for some reason. Less traffic could be it, I’m not a big fan of riding with cars these days. Go figure.
I get up, crawl towards coffee, get my daughter squared away, see off the wife at 7:30, drive the little one to daycare, drive home, make a sandwich, get the bike out and pedal off to work. Bang on a keyboard for 8 short hours (7 with lunch sub’d out), ride home, throw the bike in the garage, drive back over to daycare, pick up the little one, drive home.
And I’m really not complaining. Sure, it may well sound like it. But it could be far worse. And I know it.
