I Did It.

Yes, I rode to work today.

And it was another gorgeous day. This weather pattern has been a wonderful surprise. Even more surprising is it looks like it may last for a time. I have absolutely no complaints.

Okay, I do have one complaint but it isn't about the weather. This is what I'm riding into on my morning ride. Of course, if I'd just leave some earlier it wouldn't be a problem, but if I did so then I wouldn't have anything to complain about. No fun in that. Besides in a few days it won't be a problem anymore anyway.

At morning break I looked in on the motorcycle parking lot. I'd say there were a number of riders who couldn't find any fault with the weather today. 
And at lunchtime . . . I did it.

A whole wheat pita stuffed with falafel, romaine lettuce, and other good stuff.
The place continues to be very busy.

This was the shortest the line was during my time there.
Did I enjoy the pita? Yes. Will I go back? Yes. Next time I will work it out to get there even earlier. It was very noisy even with me setting off to the side. I would like to see if I can avoid even more of the rush.

I think I enjoyed where I sat more than the the pita. It was a great place to sit and people watch. The main reason I go out at lunchtime is to people watch and this is a great view of a great corner.

Today I left work a little earlier than I normally do. Usually, when I come out I'm the last bike in the lot but not tonight. There even was a bike I'd never seen before. Nice bike, but I think he or she could use a new rear tire.

63F/17C and a few clouds for the ride to work.
84F/29C and still a few clouds for the ride home.
