Today over lunch I went home with my buddy Jeff. Jeff's become an avid bike commuter with similar mileage to what I ride to and from work. Although we commute to the same destination and are riding the same distance, our rides couldn't be more different.
Jeff is riding on busy streets through a more developed area. He's got stops, turns, lights, traffic and businesses everywhere. I have one stop, one turn and lots of horses. I wouldn't say one is better than the other. Just different. Today's ride seemed to go by really fast compared to my commutes. New visual stimulants speed things up quite a bit. I've noticed myself getting bored with my commute recently. Today was a nice refresh.
