Biking habits - I think I turned a corner
In support of my LBS, I gave them my bike for a tuneup and to have the handles re-wrapped. I arranged it a week in advance so I could get my bike back the same day, or at most, the next day. Today I put the bike in the truck because I had to drive it to the LBS at noon and then get back to work.
Before, riding to work was kind of a chore. I packed my bag the night before, I was always tired in the morning, it would just be easier to drive but I made myself bike. This morning I found the drive irritating. Something about being in a huge vehicle, disconnected from the road and the elements. I've swung to the side where biking feels easier to me, at least for the morning commute.
I gave my bike to them, and they are great, but I seriously miss my bike right now. I have separation anxiety. I really hope I get it back in a few hours. I really want to ride today!
I think I'm going to need another bike, just for times like this.
