School starts, morning temps drop to 50, bus schedules change, the 24 Hours of Afton is complete for another year, so it’s time to mess with the routine. The transit system is the first casualty. Because cool morning temps minimize sweat, I'm going to ride back and forth to work as much as I can. That's one way, 7.5 miles, 35 minutes.
35 minutes seem slow? I’m on the 12mph bike! Free your right brain, ride single speed.
The best part of the new routine? Stopping at school, picking up The Boy 7 from the after school program, and biking home with him every day.
