Bicycle... bicycle.... bicycle

I feel great. The usually route that I used to take to the office has changed a bit. Well actually they put this big building the middle of my route. I used to take Lincoln to Emporia to Pine. The Arena that has approved for construction in Wichita is smack dab in the middle. I liked Emporia because it was a one-way street that had very little traffic at 7 in the morning. So this morning at trip that would have taken me 15-20 min, took me 25. I was not familiar with the roads form a bicycle view. I am already looking forward to tomorrows ride.

On the way home today I tried the bike path that follows IH-135. It was winding and hilly and bad the trip seem like twice as long. Now for a nice afternoon/weekend ride it would be perfect. But for a transport it not very direct.

Re: Bike rides
So what is the riding season like there? do you have more than 2-3 months of nice bicycle weather?

The last few places I lived I could have never bike to work. Now I guess I am kind of lucky to live close to town.
How far away are you from work?

We have beautiful bike paths in the city here and yet I have never used them or bought a bike. Grew up in the country where we used to just ride bikes anywhere on the roads.

Are you lovin' your bike? I'm lovin' MINE! Last week I rode past the local Go-Mart on the way to work, and I noticed that overnight gas prices had jumped from $3.99 to $4.09 per gallon. And I just smiled.

Today I drove up to Morgantown, where I'm teaching a two-day class in HIV Counseling & Testing. I stowed my bike in the trunk of my car, because Morgantown has all kinds of great bike paths that I've been dying to try out.
