Even though I’ve been riding to work every day, I haven’t felt too inclined to write about it, for one simple reason: I easily fell back into the commuting routine. Aside from a little rain the first week, it’s been smooth sailing. However, the past couple of days have been a little more interesting.
Yesterday, I arrived at work to find that one of my panniers had fallen off. I wasn’t sure where I lost it, but I needed it, so I turned back. Naturally, I found it only 1/4 mile from my apartment. This meant I rode all the way to work, nearly all the way home, and back to work again, making my ride to work nearly 9 miles, instead of around 3. This, of course, meant I was late.
This morning, it was in the lower 40s and absolutely pouring outside. I planned for this and brought a dry change of clothes, but it’s still never fun to arrive at work drenched.
I have another camping trip, and some hiking, to write about, but I haven’t been able to find time for that yet.
