Today was Bike-to-Work-Day and being in right mind and spirit, I decided to ride my bike to work. I did not wake up this morning thinking I would ride my bike to work. In Fact I was planning on going to a few garage sales with my friend before work. But soon after I woke up she text me and let me know that there weren’t many garage sales today.
So while doing my morning ritual, eating breakfast and checking my facebook, I saw where a friend wrote its Bike-to-Work-Day. I thought to myself I would normally not do this, it would mess up my hair, I would get all sweaty, have to wear funky shoes with my work clothes, hmm, how is this going to work?? So I decided to ride my bike since I had an extra hour before I needed to be there and prove to myself it wouldnt be that bad.
Surprisingly it wasnt that bad, in fact it was a fun and fairly easy ride. Im thinking I could do this every so often. In fact it would help get me in better shape and get me outside, enjoying the weather.
When I got to work, I parked my big black 1952 English Raleigh Bicycle in the hall and soon after found that one of my colleagues had made a customized basket for my bike. Nice! Who knew a big box and some zip ties would make such a nice bicycle basket? Recycling at its finest!
