I’ve never been one for gym membership. I’ve tried more than a few times, but I’m no good at the gym scene. The air is stale and the machines lack elegance. I prefer being engaged in the great outdoors pumping up a hill, fighting a headwind or justing being in it— outside.
By definition a commute is “a regular journey of some distance to and from one’s place of work.” My commute to and from work has a variety of routes and paths. Sharrows, no sharrows, I enjoy all sorts of scenes and sights along the way. It’s a membership I can afford and its as much a part of my day as breathing.
It’s hard. It takes time. But it’s worth it. I’ve been doing it for over a decade and I hope I can continue to do it for another and another after that.
Go by bike!
