Biking to work

I rode my bike to work today for the first time in 4 years. It felt pretty good. I really love that Italian steel frame.

After staring at the Santa Clara Valley Bikeways Map for several hours, I decided to take Middlefield Road for most of the way, and then hop on the VTA Light Rail for the last mile. Total trip time was just under one hour (versus about 20 minutes by car).

I had considered biking the whole distance, but Mathilda Ave isn’t very bike-friendly. Then again, the Light Rail wasn’t the most convenient option either. I probably could’ve made it here in 45 mins if I didn’t have to wait for a train. I’ll have to find a different route.
