Week of July 24, 2011:
On Sunday, I had a roundtrip of hot, humid, sweaty bike commuting, but my goodness, it was gorgeous outside. Above are a few glimpses of my bike commute route; this is an especially pretty section, lush with trees and a green canopy overhead. I’m really loving my quieter bike route these days. Not only do I avoid the intersection at Texas Ave. and University Dr., which I’ve never liked, but I get nice views, peaceful streets, and a brief interlude of calm before I cross Texas Ave. and pedal into the madness that is campus. Now that I’ve found what I consider to be my “perfect” bike commute route, I feel that much more settled in this town.
