I Am Addicted To Riding.

You know you are becoming obsessed when you plan your day around the weather, wind and daylight.
My family has been great, allowing me to ride before dinner due to weather.

Squeezing in a quick 24 mile ride in the early morning is the only motivation for waking up at 4:00 AM

Ha, there's nothing quick about a 24 mile ride. Waking up at 4 am to ride 24 miles would put me about an hour and a half late for work, LOL.

Run Forest Run, it gets worse I'm on day 12 of not driving my car. My friend is riding from NY to Seattle and I'm trying to not use my car until he gets there. But really, I just like riding my bike better.
