This has been a very tough cycling season for me so far. I’m far an away a commuting cyclist, but it’s been difficult to get much saddle time this year. Many factors have contributed to low mileage (I still feel funny saying/writing mileage when we use kilometres. Kilometreage sounds just plain weird).

  • Late spring
  • Crappy weather in the spring
  • Work travel & commitments
  • An early summer cold

Today was the first day in weeks I was able to ride to work. It felt great. I hope to keep up the momentum and ride whenever I can. July and August are usually the best months traffic wise with school out and lots of folks on vacation.
