The weather has been so nice here! High 60's and sunny. wonderful weather to ride.
Yet, I have only ridden once this week!! arg. Here are my stupid excuses:
Monday: was housesitting at a house that is actually closer to work, but farther from my safe route. So I drove to work instead of driving twice the distance to get somewhere safe enough to ride.
(I learned of a new route to work directly from my house that I plan to test run this weekend to make srue I know how to get there and the time it takes, etc)
Wednesday: Rain and storms predicted. Which did happen, but only in the middle of the day. So frustrating.
Thursday (today): woke up 10 minutes before i had to leave for work. Oops. So I had to drive like a bat out of hell only to get to work 10 minutes late. I also have to go somewhere immediately after work, which is when I really feel the pain of living in a cycling un-friendly city. There is no way to get to where I need to go on my bike. At all. All day today I have been sad that I didn't ride.
Friday: I.AM.RIDING. no matter what.
The guilt and remorse has been too much! Do you feel this way, or have weeks like this? In the back of my mind I know that there is only a small window of time between freezing cold and stupidly hot and humid, so every day that I drive feels like a waste and a shame.
To sunny days and Spring Fever and getting back on the saddle!
(oh, are you coming to the Bici Prom??...I hope to see you there)
