I changed jobs recently. I've also been on the bike about once every other week due to <INSERT STUFF HERE>. As the weather warms up and I've recently found a place to shower near my new place of employment I decided to start mapping out a commute. Commuting a few times a week is the best way for me to get my miles in because when I leave work life is a whirlwind that doesn't stop until I get home later at night with other responsibilities when I get there.
So.... the new distance is 20.3 miles. Ah... That's going to take some getting used to.
I'll start by finding a place to park about 10 miles from work and biking from there to the shower place and then back to my vehicle at the end of the day. If that kills me I'll move a bit closer and if it doesn't kill me I'll move a bit further away.
Here is the great/horrible thing. Work is generally downhill from where I live. Great for going TO work... not so much going home.
