First Commute

Well, the year is almost half over already, but today I made my first ride to work of the year. While school is still in, it is pretty hard to ride the bike to work, because I have a lot of after work commitments involving carting kids around to various activities. In the summer the Mrs. is available to do most of the carting, so I can ride a bit. Of course, I chose what is likely to be the hottest day of the year so far, with temps reaching 96F and a heat index of 105F, but the during the first part this morning, temps weren't above 85F, so it was a good ride. Going home, I don't have any time constraints, so I can take a nice easy pace.

Update: Man, it was hot on the ride home. The temps were close to as forcasted. I used the easy pace and got home without feeling any effects of the heat.

Just so I can wince at my own laziness, how far is the ride?

33 miles round trip yesterday. I can cut it to 30, or extend it by whatever I feel like riding. Map and report here.
