Back in Town and Back on the SART
Ahh yes, nothing like being back home, waking up in the morning to a delicious fruit smoothie and taking to the SART. Since I've been on the road quite a bit, the wife decided to make a super charged super food breakfast with spinach, goji berries, cinnamon, mango, strawberry, banana, and my good friend Mr. Spirulina.
After I powered down my breakfast beverage, I hopped on Serena and started riding. As an added bonus, my buddy Jed decided he's going to ride the SART with me from time to time and today was his first day.
Here's Jed, making it happen, on his virgin run on the SART this morning. Jed's been off the exercise circuit for quite some time but he seemed to enjoy the ride and the sights, sounds, and smells of the SART. He's got to ride about four miles before we meet up so I'm interested to see how he feels about the ride home this afternoon. That's the thing about commuting by bike, once you get on the bike and start riding, you're fully committed for the day. Whether he's in pain or not, I'm sure he's feeling good about burning several hundred calories, being green, and saving a few bucks in gas all before work even starts.
On the ride, we kept at an even pace and didn't try to go full Tour De France on his first ride. A couple of times along the ride I stood up on the pedals and crop dusted Jed but I don't think he noticed since he was focused on pedaling but hey, nothing says friendship like a nice fart in the face when you're taking in lots of air!
Well done Jed....well done!
