I ride 4 miles to the train station every morning, I always seems harder gong from home to the train than the train to home. The mornings are a workout for me I poke along at about 12 mph on my MTB, comming home I hit 20.5 mph today for a mile and averaged about 15 mph. I fired up the GPS and found that the train station is about 150 feet higher than my house. I knew it was up hill but I had no clue that it was that much up hill. I never thought that a 150 feet in 4 miles would be noticable.
Total commute each day 16 miles.
One of the ladies at work today saw me doing the 4 miles from the train stop to work it amazed her. She thought I was only doing about a mile from a different station she was amazed. I told her not bad for a fat old man!
I like amazing people.
