Almost a full-fledged commuter
I say "almost" because i'm still at work
The weather was great for Miami today (high 50's/no rain) so I decided to make my first ever commute. Covered the 6 mile commute in a little under than 35 minutes at a nice easy pace, only got off the saddle to take off from stop lights. My in-car commuter is usually about 25minutes, so it doesn't even take that much longer.
Rode with my newly installed rear blinky and was surprised to see the cars giving me some room as they passed (except for one truck
). Never thought that would happen here in Miami.
Want to pick up a rear rack to help with carrying some stuff. Used a backpack today, but didn't like being so top heavy and the way it made my back all sweaty. Can anyone recommend a good/light rear rack that probably won't ever see more than 15-20lbs?
All in all it was great, I can't wait for the ride home.
