Another Bike To Work Day

leave a comment »

I did another bike commute to work today. This time it was for Bike To Work Week.

I managed to shave off a few minutes from my last commute, but it still eats up a lot of my family and home time. I was able to leave the office early today (read: on time) which got me home about 20 minutes later than with my car commute (when I leave the office late). As good as this accomplishment makes me feel, I wish I worked closer to home.

My biggest hurdle is the intersection of Plano Parkway and the Dallas North Tollway. Car congestion, high speed and irrational driving occurs there the most. I’m going to look into an alternate route for Friday, but I don’t feel very optimistic.

Here are some pics from the commute home:
