Keeping up with the Neulings...
My ride home from work on Wednesday!
I regularly ride my bike to work. Yep, I'm a fit, strapping young lad. Approximately once a month I get my tredley out and organise myself to ride the 16kms to work in the morning and home again at night. Usually it needs some other form of persuasion too - such as a new 'thing' that I buy for my bike. This week it was a $5 LED light I picked up in Hong Kong. Not much - but enough to get me off my lazy butt and ride!
The weird thing is, I really enjoy the actual ride to and from work... I just hate the getting up an hour earlier to get ready, and how I have to be organised enough to have clothes etc ready so I can shower/change at work... pathetic excuse I know!
Anyway, another motivation this week was to log the ride with a GPS unit and download it using Sportsim and MotionBased (both pointed out to me by Mikey) so I can view my ride and play it back and do other sorts of useless, nerdy things with it! WEEHEE I LOVE IT!
Bring on the geek/nerd comments... come on - I dare you! Rate this as more or less nerdy than my Zip Zap post if you wish...
