This is my first week back at Michigan Tech for the fall semester. I couldn’t commute, Tuesday, because I had to exchange a textbook and get another one. The load would’ve been too much for my shoulders to handle for a total of nineteen miles. Ick.
Yesterday was my first day bicycle commuting. I was creative. I had to get to an 8 a.m. class, which is nearly impossible for me, anyway, as I am quite the opposite of a morning person. I also had to start work at 1:30 p.m. The hospital is six miles from my home, and Tech is nine and a half. I chose to drive to work and park there. I rode my bike into school. It was nice. Riding to school from the hospital isn’t a big deal because it’s all downhill. I usually cruise through Hancock at about 30-35 mph. It’s awesome. I’ve actually passed cars on my bike!
All-in-all, it was a good beginning to bike commuting to school. Another motivation for riding to class is the fact that I haven’t gotten my parking stickers for the year. Yeah. I’m not so sure that’s a bad thing, but I’m sure winter will get me right on that.
