National Bike to Work Day

Was today! And I did. And now I’m tired (I spent a good 15 minutes lying on the floor after we got in). I need to work up to the next one, although this one was completely awesome.

Checking the tire pressure. I had to put some more air in, but luckily we keep a pump in the car. Poor husband drove me out to Inman Park at 8 am. He’s so lovely.

Ready?

Yep. Let’s go!

It was a really nice morning. The heavens had opened up and it was pouring rain 20 minutes earlier. At this point it was sprinkling a little and pleasantly cool.

Naugle took pictures (all the ones in the post):

Wheeeeeee!

Almost there:

And then we got to work, on time! There are plans to go again next week. I will not carry 40lbs of stuff in my backpack then. I imagine it will make things easier. Next quarter I’m not teaching, so it is possible that I will be biking more. It’s probably a good idea.

(Thanks to Naugle for the awesome photos!)

About HappyGoth

By day, I'm a graphic designer. By night, I'm a knitter. I'm doing my part to keep Hotlanta stylish. I imagine that if you don't already understand the title of the blog, you're probably confused and perhaps slightly annoyed, but never fear - I do have a reason (and it's a good one). Having gone to hear Stephanie Pearl McPhee, and then having been inspired to blog about knitting, I found myself wondering what to call the blog. I recalled a conversation I had with Mouse and the Chicken Goddess about why it is a Bad Idea to anger knitters - this conversation was following SPM, aka the Yarn Harlot telling the assembled throng about Those Who Do Not Understand Knitting and Therefore Belittle It Much to the Chagrin of Others, or TWDNUKTBMCO, which is not the acronym she used but is the one I'm using because I forgot hers - that is, we are numerous and we all have very pointy sticks, easily transforming into an angry mob. Therefore, knitters = angry mob.

    Wow.. congrats on riding to work. I’m sure I’d be dead on the floor if I were to bike anywhere these days.. its been so long since I’ve been on a bicycle! I used to ride about 2 miles one way to work when we lived in Boulder but I stopped riding after I had my son. I like your bike- I’m hoping to get a ‘step through’ style like you have when I’m able to afford a bike.. I like those much better than the high bar ones- and they’re so much easier to ride wearing a long skirt!
    (btw.. there’s some talk of the 22nd being “National Goth Day”. So I guess we should all go out of our way to uh… dress like we do all the time, or something. LOL)
