last commute of 2012...

Well today was the last commute of the year. I have the rest of the year off as vacation! The year ended with a stiff headwind with rain/snow showers...can't wait till next year!
My goal was to ride more than the 74 days I did last year, I nearly doubled it! Rode 142 days through 25 degrees and snow to 105 degrees. What a year! Here's to an even better 2013!

I think I had my last commute too, but I'm waiting until I don't have to worry about ice when I go for my next ride.

I only have two days left at work for this year myself, and I'm going to try and get one more ride in. I also have my favorite commuter bike back so I'll take that one. It's my 1991 Trek 8000 with slicks, otherwise stock, that my son took to college when I wouldn't let him take my custom built Davidson that he otherwise used. I replaced the 8000 with a 7000, but it really isn't the same with a lower level of components, even 20+ year old components.
