Well it's my 2nd to last day of teaching and I figured that I'd try this whole commute to work thing on my Lemond. It's around 20 miles and mostly UP. The backroads are pretty tame with lots of rolling hills through Kinnelon and up into West Milford. There is one section of high traffic that I have to hit - I was there so early there was nothing. Passed 7 deer and had 11 cars coming in my direction. It was a beautiful cool morning. I could even do some efforts and not even sweat cause it was so nice. I feel really good and would love to try this some more next year. I took it easy most of the way and did it in 1:20. I had enough time to get changed, have some breakfast and chill and type this snazzy post before school even begins. Not too shabby!
