Commuting on two wheels

Finally took the bike to work today. The commute was pretty much uneventful, which is good; traffic was heavy but no-one was in a huge hurry and I ended up going faster than a lot of the cars on the Parkway, which surprised me. (It's signed 60, but everyone goes 70-80 in off hours, and it's usually closer to 90-100 in the fast lane during rush hour. Today there was a lot of traffic closer to 70. Tourists, maybe.) The only real downside is that while the first half on the Parkway is a nice relaxing ride with sweeping corners, the part after that is a four- and then two-lane road that goes in a straight line, as you can see here, which isn't the most challenging ride ever.

It's still more fun than in a car, though!
