I rode into work for the second day in a row today. It’s been foggy both days, but today was colder — 28°. We had a full moon last night and it was setting in front of me as I rode toward town. My bike has over 34,000 miles now and although I commute a lot, usually once a week or more year round, the majority of those miles are from the big trips I take. During the summer I also take a lot of weekend day trips of 100 to 200 miles each.

When I see my bike parked behind the building at work I think in my head, “Be patient, my friend, we will be going on a trip soon enough.”
