    it's National Ride to Work Day and National Nature Photography Day. So if you've got nothing to do, go for a long ride and take lots of photos of nature. Unfortunately, I've got to work and take my six-year old to and from day care. That means taking the car and not the bike.

    Rode to work today in the rain. Would have even if it wasn't RTW day.

    I can't wait to retire and have a fixed income. The one I have now is always broke.

    I work at home. Here's a track of my "Ride to Work" in my yard this morning.

    Only saw a couple of bikes today. Seems there was a "threat" of rain, amounted to a 15 minute squall. Enough to keep 99% of bikers parked in the garage, I guess.

    Love it! I should've worked from home today. But no, got drenched on the way in - totally worth it though. I'd rather be on my bike in the rain than any day in the cage.
    More life,

    I couldn't ride to work since I am retired. However, I did ride to the Wellness center to exercise, rode to pick up breakfast and rode to the store.

    I rode to someone else's work Monday morning, to the local dealer to have a new rear tire mounted on my bike. I don't ride to work because I am retired. I am working at home for SWMBO, my latest assignment painting the small bedroom...

    Of course it counts!

    Just because I'm no longer paid to live in Kansas doesn't mean I don't work. Just that now it's my choice what "work" I do.

    Mostly
