.... and it damn near killed me. 15 miles each way and a nasty headwind. I also tried a "shortcut" that took me about 20 blocks further west than I needed. Which meant 20 stupid blocks of headwind. Even with the detour and headwind, I arrived in about 1.5 hours. Which .5 hours less than I was thinking it would take.
The ride home was sweet with the wind. But the last leg is a brutal climb that only gets steeper at the top. I collapsed at home and was useless after that. I can't see how I can do this more than once or twice a week. That was Sunday and I can barely walk 3 days later.
On the bright side, I looked up bus routes. By bus it's about 1.25 hours. So maybe bus into work, ride home. Yeah, that's the ticket.
