New Commute

Now that I've settled in a bit, I've started bike commuting to Microsoft. All I have to say is... Wow! My commute distance when from 20 miles to 11 and is on much safer, more attractive roads. Yesterday's ride in took 35 minutes, which is about the same time it takes in a car. Of course my commute to Amazon, at 1:15 was better for training, but this fits in with life so much better. I can always make it longer if I really want to.

Ryan and I are happy about your shorter commute, too!

I'm glad to hear the new commute is working out better for you. (Thought it would ;)

Do you go up 51st or 40th?

I go up 51st since I'm at the RedWest campus. So basically the commute is:
- Down East Lake Sammamish Parkway
- Through Marymoor
- Up 51st (nice hill, reminds me of a short Black Nugget)
- Right on 148th
- Arrive @work
