Back to Commuting Tomorrow

I had 2 weeks vacation, and it's back to commuting tomorrow. It was great to take some time off from the bicycle. Although on my 2nd week I rode from Fort Collins, CO to Colorado Springs, logging about 500 miles in 5-6 days. Guess I just missed it too much!

A break from the daily grind is nice - even if you really enjoy your commute. Have fun!

And you didn't even stop in to say hi. Hmmmph! I see how you are.

I yelled to you across the Platte, but you must not have heard me! Where are you located? Those are some nice trails there. I saw quite a few commuters on the Cherry Creek trail on Thursday morning around the rush hour. Are you able to incorporate them into your ride?
