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.
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.
