Commuting

Below is a preview, click to read the full post

There was something a little different going on this week... a spot of 'commuting' on the bike. Well, sort of commuting - not in the usual sense (I walk to work daily) but in the 'riding on the road of an evening' way. The car needed some work so had to get to Gladesville from home in St Leonards and back. Dropping it one evening and collecting the next with a quick ride filling the gaps seemed the way to go...

... and to be honest, on this showing, commuting by bike must be a very sensible option. Not only is this going to keep you in great shape, but it might take just about the same time. Note that the trips this week were actually taken probably way after most people would be travelling - 7-8pm so the advantage of the bike is very much diminished, but even so, the time taken to ride was only twice that of the trip by car. Let's not forget during the peak I wouldn't have been able to drive in... erm... the rather rapid way I usually do - there would be much more time spent queuing at intersections and the like.

Here's the profile from today's ride... we agreed, it was toughest 14km Craig or I had ever 'ridden':

I use the term 'ridden' loosely as much of this was lugging bikes up from the abyss that is at the end of the left fork of Road to Nowhere. Yes, yes, my profuse apologies to Craig - the rides was perfect right up until the point he mentioned how good it was going and perhaps we should swing back and join the XC circuit. At this point there might even have been time for a side trip to Moon Rock when we got there.

Well, I'm not going to blog about every ride I go on, so check out my MotionBased digest for that. Well - if I've remembered to take the trusty Edge along Eye-wink
