Bike: Sunday

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. 


  1. Lovely greenery. I feel like my campus would have to move off of the big hill that it sits on for me to have a perfect commute. It's great to fly down the hill on my way home, but sometimes I feel like my legs are turning to jello on the way up.

  2. Oof, hills! They're a lot of work! My campus is on a very gentle uphill slope, so I have a climb when riding to work, too. But it's so gentle that it isn't too painful on the way up. Riding home in the evening is always a treat because the downhill does a lot of the work for me :-)
