Well I am back and made my commute of the year...

After 2 years of full-time coast-to-coast travel (and very little bike riding) I am finally back home and getting back to a commuting routine. While I have always been a clyde, that 2 years of living in hotels and eating out cost me nearly 40 lbs which I am now starting to shed. My commute is a Florida flat 30 miles RT and I am able to ride 3 days a week - though only twice this week due to other commitments. I am also back riding with my club on Saturday mornings so my target mileage is 120 per week. Still riding my 02 Jamis Coda - but the only thing still stock is the frame. I rode to work yesterday - and of course had my first flat...grrr. My rear armadillo was down to the cords which I didn't see under the fender - overall the armadillos have held up, but I have never really liked them so I am going back to gatorskins....actually, the "new" gatorskin hardshell and I ordered the 700x28 which is a little larger than my usual 25. I was thinking is offered a tiny bit more protection for my heavy bike, heavy me and the full Ortlieb Office Bag I commute with - I love the office bag by the way. Perfect for my laptop, iPad, shoes & a change of clothes. More to come as the year progresses....
