Where do you ride? What’s your route to work?
I’ll go first: this is my short ride from the Caltrain Station in Palo Alto, CA to my office. Bikely says this is 3 miles; my bike computers all say it’s closer to 4. If I have the time, I’ll sometimes extend my ride by cycling to another train station farther away.
When I’m by myself I usually take it easy. Most mornings, though, I ride with “Mike.” He’s a young guy on a mountain bike, and every ride is a hammerfest for him. He seems content to let me draft as he pulls me along at nearly 30 mph.
