Biking to Work
I really like my new job. Very different from slinging code all day and working under the pressure of a big deadline. I’m sure it will have it’s trying moments, but they haven’t shown up yet.
So Saturday I drove home for lunch which I’d done everyday thus far, and Jenny says she has a present for me. Since we’re supposed to be saving money I was a little perplexed as to why she would be buying me random presents, but it soon all became clear to me.
She found a used 6-speed bicycle at a yard sale down the street from us. 25$ for my new transportation to and from work. It will pay for itself within a few months if not sooner. I love it. We got a lock and some front and rear lights so that I can ride home safely in the evening, but overall I don’t really need to do much to it. It rides pretty well and because it doesn’t look like much it will probably keep the theives at bay.
Today was my first day riding to work and of course it decided to rain on me during the ride back home. I still loved it. This was one of my goals for moving to Tucson. Having/using only one car and therefore biking/walking to work and school. Both of those things are definitely possible from where we live.
Things are going pretty darn well.
