First day bike commuting to work! I am lucky enough to live within about 7 miles of work... Del Ray, a neighborhood in Alexandria, VA to SE DC at the Washington Navy Yard. My wife and I just moved last week, and so today was the first opportunity for a ride. I kicked it off in fine style meeting my friend and 'bike-mentor' Wes over in Old Town Alexandria for a cup of coffee.
I felt pretty sluggish, as I haven't ridden consistently since early December and I was a bit overdressed as it turned out. But successful nonetheless. The ride home was interesting becuase I very quickly left behind our old condo in SE DC and just.... kept going.... once I made it past DCA I was really enjoying myself and wishing the ride home was even longer!
