My wife caught the cycling bug this spring and really got into it. We'd go out most evenings and do 10-15 miles. Then she bruised her Achilles tendon and had to be off the bike a few weeks. It drover her nuts, especially when I'd go out for a ride myself. She started riding again, but now she's in Orlando for the last two weeks taking some training classes, so again, no riding. She gets back tomorrow night and we plan to lead a breakfast ride on Saturday morning. She can't wait.
But yeah, she feels your pain.
When my commute was about 7 miles I commuted by bike most of the time. It's a good distance.
I stop for people / whose right of way I honor / but not for no one.
