So I just bought a bike to ride to work. I go just shy of 25 miles there and another 25 back. It takes me two hours (currently) to run this course. I wake up at 4AM to get to work at 6AM. I take two bike trails the Fall Line Trace and the River Walk, which links up and drops me in the general location of my company. http://www.columbusga.org/planning/transportation/projects/Rails-To-Trails/RTTFlyer_Updated.pdf The map is decent but doesn't show the full extent of the river walk. Also the one park and ride is right by my daughter's daycare, so on days I need to pick her up I can park there and ride down to work, cutting about 30 minutes off right now. It takes me 45 minutes to drive to work and my goal is to be able to do my course, from flat rock park to my company, in an hour and a half. And to be fit enough to do the course 5 times a week, if I don't need the Ranger for anything. I got passed with one mile left to go to get home by a guy with a beer belly on Wednesday, I was so embarrassed. Unfortunately, I couldn't pick up enough steam to repass him. I bought a $1,800 worth of bicycle stuff. I bought a kiddie pull along, to convince my wife to exercise with me and our baby. I also grabbed a garmin watch that tracks distance, time, and my heart rate. And then the bike itself was $800, plus all the add ons like bottle mounts and lights and repair kits. I also grabbed a helmet and some bike shorts. I still need a decent pair of sunglasses, maybe something that darkens in the light so I can use it during my early morning commutes.
