Bicycle commuting to work is fun! The hour passes quickly. When a friend rides with you it is more fun and the time flies. I feel I even ride faster.
My first commuter buddy was Phil, latter Richard joined the morning ride it was great. We rode together for years until occupations and the routines changed.
Today Phil met me on the path and we did the extended commute up the hill together. We even passed some of the older walkers on the path that used to pass 10 years ago. After that we had breakfast outside.
It was a great start to the day.
