Riding to Work

One of the reasons I'm jazzed about my new gig is it's within (bike) riding distance from our house. Usually I start riding to work when it gets warm, which is usually in March or April. However, I used to ride to downtown to the Tivoli Theater when I worked there in college. Back then, I'd ride no matter what, and I worked there in the winter. A buddy of mine works downtown and he's been riding to work all winter - even when it was 0°F out. To make a long story short, I got motivated by him this weekend and decided to start riding my bike to work. Today it was 29°F and the ride was beautiful. Riding in the cold is a lot like skiing - you just have to be dressed for it. It only took 30 minutes, which is 5 minutes slower than the Light Rail and the same duration as the bus.

My office being at home for now, the bike ride is tolerable. ;)

PS - Nice anti-spam measure. Simple math question my foot!!

Matt you are one hardy dude! My office is 40 feet from my front door. For exercise, I take breaks and play soccer with my kids. Yesterday was MLK day so everyone was off. My 8 and 3 year old played against me. We tied. ;) The real exercise comes in chasing the ball. We live at the top of a hill. When the ball gets lost, you have to chase it quite a ways. I need to fix up my bike. There are some really nice trails near my house.

My commute is similar. It takes 30 minutes and I'll go as low as zero F. I also avoid rain when it's 35F to 50F. More people should do it! Any distance less than 15 miles is doable by anyone, no matter what they may think. You have to commute anyway. It really helped me during stressful times. You don't want to spend all of your waking hours programming anyway. However, it hardly takes any extra time (just the extra time to change clothes). Here is a great link for anyone interested.

I wish my commute allowed for a nice spin. I've got an hour and a half (of actually doing 75MPH) to make it from home to the office. Hopefully we'll get moved sometime close so I can save on gas.

Hello. Thanks to "" for recommending my bike commuting tips page. However, I left SFSU several years ago, and moved the pages to another server. The current link is:
