    Getting up on Monday mornings is so much easier knowing that I get to ride to work with fresh legs!

    It looks like you ride the USS Enterprise (NCC-1701-A) to work. The handlebars are the warp nacelles.

    I wish that were possible! Looking at your pics makes me think your commute takes you on some of the most beautiful and peaceful bike paths in the country. I doubt very many people have access to great paths like those. You are very lucky to have that infrastructure nearby.

    You don’t need to rub it in. I was already running late when I noticed my back tire deflating severely about 3/4 a mile from home (and on the opposite side of a crew fixing a massive water main break), so I hiked the bike back home through the mud and drove in. I’ll get my eleven miles tomorrow…

    I like that! :-)

    I don’t mean to be greedy, but we need more trails, and those that we have need to be worked into a cohesive network. I’m fortunate in that around 15-20% of my commute is on trails, but the rest is on city streets. The photos aren’t meant to be misleading, but I don’t make a habit of taking photos while mixing it up with traffic, so most of the commuting photos that end up on the blog are from the trails.

    Sorry about that – I hate that feeling when you realize your tire is going flat… :-(

    I hope you have a wonderful ride tomorrow!

    That is 15-20% more trails than I ride on my commute–I have zero :-( And no, I wouldn’t want you taking extreme panda pics on the mean streets. Keep taking those beautiful trail pics!
