Squeezing in the time
I know of a way to get more time on the bike, but I just have not been able to figure out the logistics. How? Commute to work on it. Before I bought the house in 2004, I had a one mile commute. I rode into work frequently and loved it. Now the commute is 13 miles and involves a big hill. Doable? Yes. I have planned it out in my head numerous times, but always want to take a few “trial” rides first. Those never happen. With fall here and the daylight time dwindling, I might have to wait to get those trial rides in next spring.
