relocated this weekend...

Just started my 24 mi rt commute this morning. Rode home Fri. evening, but that doesn't really count... tons of broken glass the first few miles of the ride, picked up a shard and spend ~15 minutes replacing a tube. I'm slow, I know, but I'll get faster if I can't go down to the bridge and sweep it.

I was pretty tired by the time I got to work... the commute with tire change was about an hour and 20 minutes, and the shower and change was another 15, so it's a big change from the 25-30 minutes I used to spend on the 9 mi rt commute.

The new route is almost entirely on MUP, (Mt Vernon, heading south, for those of you local) lots of people heading the other way, one or two joggers, bright sunshine and flowers, all in all a great time. I can't wait to go home!
