Just wanted to share I did my first commute to work. It was 5.6km one way and am looking forward to the ride back after work
This a great community here and am happy to have found this site
Hope everyone is having a good day(yes I might have a bit of endorphin flooding happening right now :p)
Good on you Lisa. My commute to the CBD is about the same at 6km.
Well done. Enjoy your day and have a great ride home.
Lovely morning for it too. Good work!
Good job! You're right about the endorphins, I feel so much cheerier on the mornings I ride my bike into work.
Well done on what was probably the coldest morning of the year so far. On such a beautiful sunny day it will leave you feeling really great all day for doing it.
Thanks for joining.
Thats a great start. I am sure you will enjoy the social interaction that comes with cycling as well as the fun and fitness that also comes with it. Happy cycling Lisa!
Welcome fellow commuter my return ride is 50km. Nice and fresh to start your first commute, another car off the road or less time waiting for a bus that never comes, Door to door is always good I hope the place where you finished up has good facilities for showering and changing
Thanks guys. Yeah thankfully there is shower here, is a bit pokey and bruised my elbow on the protruding coat hanger on the back of the door. Not gonna commute everyday due to needing car during work days sometimes but I am aiming for 2-3times per week initially and then working up to 5 days later in the year
You should join some AC riders this Sunday on our social ride starting from Bocelli on the corner of Wakefield and Hutt at 08.30 (get there earlier if you want a warming coffee first). We guarantee to look after newbies on this ride.
Thanks. Such a positive response to my first thread :) Atm I play korfball sundays so am trying to take it easy Sunday morns but when the season finishes if you could keep me in mind im keen :)
This afternoon you are in for a treat when you ride home.
The weather is perfect. The nicest afternoon to commute since ...
last week i suppose.
