Happy End of Turkey Weekend, Bike Commuters. Is it just me, or is it getting stuffy in here? Of course, by stuffy, I mean I’ve been stuffed full of Auntie T’s chorizo dressing and cranberry-themed meat dishes all weekend. Don’t get me wrong, I love family time and pretending to care about the Raider’s losing to those other guys, but a Cycle Lady can only take so much chips and guac, cooped up in front of the TV with cousins, until she’s ready to bike up Mt. Baker.
After the holiday cray cray, there’s nothing like your Monday morning commute to power up those idle legs, cranky from couching it during a four-day food fest. Sauf your family’s excursion to the LBS to trample other human beings for awesome Black Friday bike goodies, right? Okay, we didn’t do that either… my dad is more the Cyber Monday type.
Ugh, it’s weekends like this that have me planning out my next caffeinated a.m. ride during the five hour train back to Portland. If only these maps had a coffee shop overlay button…
Or it makes me want to stretch out my commute for some scenic easy riding.
Or it’s got me dreaming of buying a sweet folder so that I will never be without bike during any family vacation, ever again!
Anyways, bike commuters… Hope you are looking forward to the start of your week as much as I am: Enjoy the ride, and BURN FAT, NOT OIL! Welcome back to the grind.
