I decided that commuting by bike would be a good thing, so I purchased a bike and have been riding in the evenings for the past week to get acclimated. Today, being a lazy Saturday morning so no pressure, I decided to take the bike to work. The ride was uneventful and very enjoyable given the coolness of the morning. However, once I rode the 6 miles, and went up the 11 stories to my lab, I realized I didn't have my keys because I left my car keys (and lab keys) at home.
And that is how my 6 mile commute turned into 18 this morning.
