It's much easier to get motivated to haul my fat ass seven miles to work on my bike after watching Lance, Tyler, Jan, Roberto, et. al haul their much less fat asses couple hundred kilometers across cobble stones and dirt roads (dirt roads? who the hell planned this route?)
Today, as I left work and saw the rain falling, I considered throwing the bike on the bus and taking the easy way out, but I didn't. And I'm glad. It rained for a bit, but not long and I enjoyed the ride. I think I might actully stick to my goal of riding at least 3 days a week... if my bike stays unbroken... Stupid out-of-true wheel. Yeesh.
