I'm Really Likin' This Commutin' Thing

Granted, I only have four miles to go one way, but it is a big help on saving gas $$$, not to mention that I had a bilateral knee replacement in November, so it is great for my legs. I am lucky, as I park my bike right in my classroom and I can use the coach's office to shower and to dress.

On the down side, I left school today as soon as I could (Friday's we are allowed to leave as soon as the buses do)---and I go stuck behind a school bus for three of the four miles!

class commute

ref,

I too have a short commute on the way to school. Just for fun I take a much longer route there so that I can go past DD. Haven't figured out how to eat a pair of donuts and drink my coffee without having a bath. But I will keep trying.

If the coach's shower isn't available, baby wipes do wonders.
