It's good to be back in the saddle, for all that I haven't had overmuch to say on the topic. But cycling has re-entered my life as an all-the-time thing, especially with regard to how I get to work. The flip came for me when I realized that I have to go to work anyways. And either way I have to wake up at "Insanely Early" o'clock. So if all that is true anyways, I may as well get my ass out of bed and get there by bike.
It's funny, that simple, basic admission is exactly what gets me out of bed. And now that I've been back at it for a while, it's just reflex. I barely remember the "equipment difference," so to speak involved in driving my car to work. Which has the huge benefit that my tank of gas lasts 3 or 4 weeks instead of 2. I can almost justify owning an SUV!
As we move into high summer (holy shit, it's already July) it's time to make the adjustments for the real hot weather. But I've got a good thing going here and I don't intend to stop any time soon.
