I decided that this morning was to be my first time to commute to work this year. The temps are in the mid 30's in the morning so I don't have an excuse it's too cold. If it's above freezing it' good. Took off from the house at 4.50 am and arrived at my job site at 6.45am. Rode the single speed cross bike and the legs felt tired. Pedaling a 42x17 gear ratio. On the way home they really felt tired. Maybe from the Death Ride mileage and the fact that I have to climb over Lizard Head Pass to get to work which is at 10,000 feet elevation. Maybe!!??? So not a bad commute going both directions, almost 60 miles and 5k+ of climbing going and coming back from work. A long day for sure. I did see some Elk and an Elk cow and her little calf.
