As of today, the commuting slump is broken. Finally. 34 mile round trip. I'm embarrassed to admit how many months have passed since I've last commuted to work. An extremely lame winter, haven't been this lame since, uh, last winter. Some years I'm the pretty hard core commuter - lights blazing, pouring rain, snow - didn't matter. The last two years, call me Mr. Lame.
Even so, once I start cranking again, wind up commuting 3 - 5 days a week. That's upwards of 170 miles per week. Not too shabby and during the course of a year, I still wind up putting more commuting miles on two wheels then four - usually.
Let the ramp up begin. My wallet, mental outlook and fitness level, will thank me in a few weeks. Until then, slow speeds and some ouch factor involved. Bike commuting rocks.
