Riding your bike to work.
Riding your mountain bike to work.
Okay, it wasn't a bad idea, but it was a horrible ride home. Mostly, it was the headwind. I ran out of steam a few miles from home. The wind just sucked everything out of me. The last leg of my ride home was just slow, crampy and painful.
Before all that fatigue set in, I was still only averaging about 10 MPH into the wind, despite sweating up a storm. My riding position on that bike, it's gearing and tires, everything combines to make for a pretty inefficient trip. Fun, but inefficient. I don't think I'm going to be riding the full round trip on the Sorrento too often. It just takes too much effort, and isn't worth the trade-off. When it gets really cold out, I'm probably going to slip back into bike/bus mode full time.
I'm gonna go crash for a few hours. I feel like a puddle of goo.
