Tuesdays are days I meet clients at my office. There were 4 meetings in total, and none required me to bring my lap top....I could use the computer in the office. I tossed what I needed into my backpack, added coffee and some protein options to make sure I had the energy to bike home. It went well, but was not without a few snags.
- Biking in a dress is not as easy as it looks. All the way to work I feared a Marilyn Monroe moment, thankfully it was only a fear, not reality. How do other ladies bike in a dress?
- Bike racks are not required at office buildings. Yes, in bike friendly Madison there are buildings without bike racks....mine. Upon firing up the desk top computer at the office, I promptly emailed the landlord about having one installed; and
- When you live and work in the "hillfarms neighborhood" expect hills. Thankfully the up part of my commute is going home....leaving me a bit frazzled looking, but a frazzled bike commuter!
Tips and suggestions on working biking into your daily routine are welcome! I'm saving gas money, strengthening my body, and going easy on the earth. And I want more of it!
My office -- hopefully a bike rack will be added soon!
