Today I filled up my water bottle, strapped on my protective gear and rode my bike to work for the first time. It was a very nice cool morning and at 5:00 am, there are not many cars out. My trip, on my new Schwinn bike, took a little over 17 minutes to travel 3.7 miles. My average speed was 12.8 miles per hour with a top speed of 19 mph. I'll have to agree with my wife, who said "See you really are a geek because you even bought a computer for your bike." As a result of this trip I can also say that the showers that my work had installed are a very nice feature, although next time I think I'll remember my towel.
