Of course, I was playing pass and be passed by a city bus the entire way in. Thankfully, the few times I had to go out into traffic to pass the cagers were courteous and slowed to let me into their lane.

I'm sure I'll pay for my easy commute in on the way home though.

Oh, I also ditched the carbon bike in favor of my steel road bike. Man, I love the ride qualities of this bike. So much smoother and not as twitchy as my CF road bike. I averaged 16.2mph, which is pretty good for me considering how hilly this ride is.
