Never thought a commute could be so exciting..

Never thought a commute could be so exciting..

Postby ValleyForge » Wed Aug 22, 2012 2:02 pm

Dropped car in for a service this morning and had planned to ride from there to work.

I used to do the 10k commute, but "graduated" to the River Loop (40K) before work, 3 days a week. I then stopped commuting as it was a bit ho hum. Until today - Ann St The Valley is a racetrack at 8am! Sprint, dive on the brakes, sprint again, up & down cogs. Like crit racing; if I didn't feel like my life was threatened I couldn't wait to do it every day!

I could agree with you, but then we would both be wrong.
