When J and I bought our bikes at the REI Garage Sale in August, I have to admit, I really thought they’d just collect pollen. J intended to commute to work, but since he loathes mornings, I couldn’t picture him getting up and jumping on his bike to ride. Luckily, I was wrong!
Instead, he’s been amazing me with his commitment to biking! He rides to/from work sometimes 3 times/week. It’s 12 miles one way, so that’s pretty darn good. Since my commute is about 300 feet from my bedroom to my office, I had to get creative. So when J rides home, I hop on my bike and meet him for some of the ride. I usually make it 4-5 miles, then ride the way back home with him. Sadly, with the days getting shorter and the temps dropping, our season of biking is probably ending soon.
I brought my camera with me last week, so I present to you our bike route. The colors of the leaves had really just started to pop. Even yesterday on our ride, they were so much brighter than they were in these pictures.
