This is day two of my commuting. I decided to take the road bike because it's much easier to ride it back up the hill. It cut yesterday's climb down from 1:40 to 1:15. That is a big difference. Also, this is the day of my late class so I didn't have to leave the house until 11:30. It's much warmer at that time of day compared with the crack of dawn.

Temps were in the 50s for the ride back up the mountain but it was a bit windy. As I neared Raven Road my wife was coming up the highway and she stopped and asked if I wanted a ride. If she had come along a few miles down the mountain I might have taken her up on it, but as it was I was almost home.

This is the second day in a row that I've ridden a bicycle. I haven't done that in a couple of years. It also double the number of rides that I have had so far this year.

I think that I might enjoy this commuting business. Hopefully, it can get me back in top physical condition. It's good for me.
