Bike Laps

Today was no fun.  I got asked to fix someone’s computer and as usual, I was unable to say no.  So, I headed out this afternoon to work on it.  It ended up taking longer than I had planned and I didn’t get home until after 4:00.  That didn’t leave much time to squeeze in a bike ride before sundown.  I threw on my lights and headed out.  I ended up doing laps around the Calvin College campus.  It is about a mile and a half loop.  Kind of boring, but it was flat and more importantly safe.  I ended up doing 8 laps for 12 miles and then added on some more after that to round it out to 20 miles.

On the way home, I stopped to take a picture of the beautiful sunset.  The sky was so red, it looked like it was on fire.  A great way to end the ride.


The ride was a great way to realize the stress of the day.  However, with the time I spent fixing the computer and biking, now I have to make up my work hours tonight.  I can’t complain though, I just lucky to have a job that is so flexible.

Finally, I saw this  ad for Lazer bike helmets online and it gave me a good laugh.  Enjoy!
