Bike to Work Month - Day 7 - Commuting by Truck Averted

I poured my first cup of coffee this morning, clicked on the "Weather Channel" app and noticed that there was an 80% chance of rain -starting at around 7 AM and throughout the day and evening. I decided to drive the truck to work. As an added benefit and justification for taking the easy and dry road, I also recalled that I needed to get home quick this afternoon to take my wife out to dinner. I took another sip of coffee and then it dawned on me - May is Bike to Work Month - I committed to riding and blogging everyday - dang me and my commitments - why can't I just be-bop through life without a care in the world - why do I have to go and make such a commitment to the entire blogosphere?

Oh well, what's done is done. I put on my riding shoes and helmet and climb on my bike. I stopped at the gym to work out and when I came back out to my bike around 7 AM to continue my commute, there was a light drizzle dangling in the air. As I paralleled the James River I looked across at the grey, threatening clouds and hoped the rain would hold off.

I made it to work still dry and with my commitment intact.
