It's been tough at times getting into bicycle commuting lately. Between my longer commuter and quickly changing weather, it's getting too easy to just take the car. So what can I do to renew my enthusiasm? Buy some bling for the bike of course! I bought a vintage Wrights W3.N saddle off ebay to replace the basic vinyl-covered, plastic-framed thing that was on there. Now my saddle looks like this:
From a distance you can't really tell,
...but my butt sure can feel the difference!
The ride home was very windy today: twenty, maybe even thirty mph winds right in my face. I'm glad it was a nice warm wind though. I'm also glad the river wasn't too high for me to cross...
...although it was close, because even with the warm weather I really didn't feel like doing any extra miles this afternoon. Wind. BAH!
Oh... I forgot my other new bling! I also got a new t-shirt which hopefully will inspire me:
It's a little hard to make out, but it says RIDE MORE THAN YOU DRIVE.
