Cycling To Work

I rode my bicycle in to work today. It was a good ride. Kinda chilly, but once I got going, it felt good. I managed to stay off of Lawndale completely, as I worked through the neighborhood a bit further than I did Sunday and came out on Pisgah Church. Crossing Cone wasn't a big deal -- there were plenty of large gaps in traffic to make it safe to cross. I didn't have any competition on Dellwood, either, so riding on that for the majority of the ride felt safe.

The shower facilities at work leave a bit to be desired, but they're not bad. I wish there were lockers, though, so I could hang my towel up instead of packing it back up in my bag. Still, it's nice to at least have a shower in the building.

The ride was 3.5 miles, took me about 20 minutes.
