Seems like it would be easier to just drive the whole way to work then come home earlier and go for a leisure ride.

Once I'm in the car or on the bike, I'm staying there.
If you lived in the DC suburbs and had to cross the Potomac River, you would understand. Takes about 10 minutes more on average riding a bike 15 miles of my commute than it does driving. Sometimes if traffic is really light, I’ll drive all the way and ride after work, but that is pretty rare. Sometimes, such as yesterday, a major commuter road was closed due to a sinkhole, which made things even worse. On my bike, I breezed past all the traffic jams to where I parked, and the roads from there to my house were clear.
