Today was our first day riding the new shorter commute. It was a whole new ride today. We usually haul a change of clothes with us, but today we were able to cycle in our work clothes. It’s just like riding in the fall and spring, but with 100 degree weather. It’s absolutely great being in the middle of town now, as opposed as the outskirts. It isn’t a 20 minute ride to get anywhere we frequent anymore. 5 minutes to work, 5 minutes to the bank, 5 minutes to the grocery store, we now live in a livable part of town.
