Back in the daily grind….

For a while I was self employed. But with my student loans and rent increase on its way next month, I had to get a job.

Not that the job is bad, heck its a great company! But the drive sucks!

It’s about 20 miles away…yeah I know its ridable. But the thing is my hours are going to change soon to super early hours…the kind where I have to be at work right when the bars close at night.

So I was thinking, if I can’t ride to work, I might as well ride during my lunch breaks. My new job is with this international gym company, so fitness is encouraged.

The city I work in is Irvine,Ca. a beautiful place…nice flat roads with wide bike lanes! So stick around as I document my product testing and adventures in the next few weeks!
