Yes, I know that you are sitting on the edge of your seats with your face so close to your monitor that you many injure your eye sight long term, all in anticipation of reading about my commutes to work.
The things I love the most about riding to work are 1.) Getting miles in 2.) Two work outs a day 3.) The company 4.) My fan club along the way that consists of: nice honks, waves, and yells of “hello” by friends (as opposed to the mean honks and flips of the middle finger). 5.) Riding my bike.
After multiple tries of forgetting my Garmin or forgetting to turn it on I have finally accumulated the stats from the commute. Drum roll please….
