Fixed + Headwind + Incline = Sucks

So, I rode my s3x tikit into work, for the first time, yesterday (getting back into commuting). Unfortunately, in the way home I was facing a stiff KS headwind, with the fixed gear and the occasional incline (yes we have those in KS) I was hurting by the time I got home (not being in shape contributed…).

So, today is recovery day. Tomorrow, I’m back in the saddle.

New Tikit Cargo Solution!

Needed to take my wife’s van in to be serviced but come home rather than wait. What would be better than using the Tikit?

Of course, I forgot there were some things in the van my wife would need and I hadn’t grabbed any panniers or bags. What to do? Improvise!

Actually, I think it worked pretty well…

Bikes, Pizza & Gelato

The boys and I had a blast at the recent Spin Pizza family ride. Unfortunately it was the last of the summer… 😦

Well my oldest had a blast, my younger boy apparently didn’t get enough of a nap. 😉

New job, new route, new blog…

So, after a long hiatus (lost a job and then got a job that was not bike commute possible) I started a new job this past week. It fits my skill set and education perfectly AND it’s going to be sweet riding to work. I’ll pick up the MUP / Trail a couple blocks from my house and take it to within a couple blocks of my office. Also, there’s space in my cube to fit my bike…

I’ll post a google maps route later… It really is sweet.

Oh, and if you didn’t notice thus blog has a new home: jdmitchbiketowork.wordpress.com
I believe I’ve re-routed everything right so you shouldn’t have to resubscribe.

PS – I actually have a new bike coming a well… But I’ll post more on that later…
