What’s the rush?

On my commute today, I decided to take it nice and slow. After about the first mile I started to think…”why haven’t I done this before?” Typically when I’m bike commuting I have this sense of urgency that propels me to ride fast, sprint out of intersections and race against buses and cars. But today I just felt different and decided to take in the nice cool Fall weather that we’re having in Southern California by taking my time to get to my destination.

This even inspired me to take some photos of my ride.

I even stopped off in downtown where I snapped this photo of the Redline 925 next to the Christmas tree.

Now that I was able to enjoy this slower paced bike commute, I think I’m going to do it more often! I felt great, super relaxed and not sweaty as a result of it.
