This morning was my first bike commute to work ever. Not just to my new American job, but ever (I’ve always lived too far from work until now — being a bike ride away from work was one of the criteria for the apartment in the US). The ride was rather pleasant, and involved very little on the road stuff (just getting onto the bike path near the apartment) — 27 minutes, 7.7km, maximum speed of 33 km per hour.
There is a lot of room for improvement here — we didn’t go the most efficient way, I am relatively unfit at the moment not having ridden for a month, and Andrew is learning how to use cleats which made for a bit of laughter.
A nice ride though, and I’m pretty happy with how it went. I’ll be riding more in the future.
