Biking for the first time to work after 2 years.
« on: August 21, 2013, 08:07:03 AM »
Just biked for the first time to work (downtown Chicago) after 2 years of working here. (hangs head in shame). The commute time for the 6 miles was shorter than waiting and taking the bus or waiting and taking the train. And I found out we have a secure storage room for bikes in the parking garage and that I can save on all sorts of personal care products by showering at the gym at work. I've been wary because driving in Chicago is a bit crazy like any big city and I've had friends that have been hit a few times. and we have assholes like these guys.

Yes, way to go Megatron!

Based on what you've shared, I can understand your initial apprehension.  It's awesome that you decided to give it a try.  I hope that you continue to enjoy the commute.

Great job.

You put this in the wrong forum. It should be "Share your Badassity."
