A wayward commuter returns
Summer's half over and I finally lubed up the road bike and took it out at six this morning. Met up with a friend from work on the way, and he proceeded to thrash me. I told him I had to pull some of the time so I could have a break. Ugh. It was awesome. I gotta do this more often.
I've gone on short rides with the kids quite a bit, just never the full commute to work since...I can't even remember when. The reason for my slackness? I must confess, there's something I love more than ridingówriting. I've spent all my free time writing two novels: one for practice, and another that I hope to get published.
So, anyone else have a hobby that trumps biking, or am I the only infidel?

I only have time for one hobby/obsession at a time, which currently happens to be cycling. But a couple of years ago, I got seriously into finish carpentry and spent 2 summers of evenings and weekends building a massive, solid wood entertainment center for the basement. I didn't do much cycling those two years. But that passed, and how I have a garage full of really nice power and hand tools that are collecting dust.
biking only adds 30min each way for my commute, I can spare that just for the fun. Time on the weekends is working on the house, never have time to ride on the weekends, always time to take my son fishing tho
