I'm a roadie, commuter, birthday boy! (photo)

It's my birthday! Me and "leave it to Beaver"
I'm a roadie. I'm a commuter. I'm a guy who lost a ton of weight over the last year.
I'm a guy who gets a lot of bike commuting support and ideas on this forum.
Thanks!
Here's me, arriving at Los Medanos College well before the students, headed for my office to change.
Yep, that's full on roadie goofy clothes. On the weekend i ride my road bike and I've got the comfy duds, so I wear 'em.

The baskets are a recent addition for me. In this photo I'm transporting a laptop, clothes, lunch and a big 'ol camera bag with too much $$ in camera gear. Life is good.

Congratulations and Happy Birthday.

How many miles is your daily commute to the college?

I commute 8.5 miles.
That PVC is actually a cardboard tube with some large photos in it. I made posters for our sculpture professor. It's just bungied on the rack. It usually isn't there.
