First Commute to School
Today was my second day of college for the winter quarter, we started yesterday. I have been planning on commuting to school since I started cycling about two or three months ago, and today was my first day.
Made it maybe 13 miles in and I got a flat and I don't have a mini pump yet, so I got a friend to pick me up, and now I am sitting in one of the college buildings having missed my class. So that wasn't so good.
However, I can already tell I am going to love commuting by bike. The road I commute on is very rural, little to no shoulder, and we have lots of traffic from log trucks, etc. So, hopefully the flats are not a common thing. My route is 15.1 miles one way.
I attached a map of my commute, hopefully it turned out well.
I guess the whole point of this post was to complain
