Life off the bike feels weird. Sure, I enjoy sleeping in a bit later (when my kids let me) and spending more time with the family, but giving up bike commuting has been disruptive. I am definitely a bit softer around the middle, less focused, and missing my sunrise and sunset reflection time on the bike. My occasional mid-week mountain bike jaunts are fun, but unfortunately not often or long enough to make up from my usual routine. I've even thought about hopping on the trainer (gasp!). I look forward to seeing my usual peeps out on the route again soon.
