Triathletes Bike to Work
Or at least now I can say that this triathlete bikes to work. Today I finally biked to work after over 8 months of thinking about it. I drove 3 different routes and mapped out countless more before I finally took the plunge and biked to work. It was 25 miles and took 1.5 hours. Any Orange County resident can tell you that it's not easy to map out a "good" bike route from Irvine to Fullerton; good meaning able to avoid large freeway on-ramp intersections and busy morning commute streets. I didn't ride home today but now that I've done it once I plan to do it a lot more often. I'll probably be biking to and from work this Friday. Yes!
If you look closely in this picture of my bike in front of my office you'll see me. Also you may notice that I didn't drink very much on my ride. For those of you interested I have a generic set of aero bars, a Polar cs100b wireless computer, and I never ride (or run) without my Polar s625x watch. If you have any questions about any of my tri gear just send me a note.
