Bike-commute day 41—to home

Tuesday, 21 June 2011.

Totally refreshed by a double-tall glass of liquids sipped throughout the afternoon and also benefiting from the cooler temperatures, my route home was swift, even along the Mad River with headwinds pushing back at my cadence.

After a short workday, which started at 14:00, I took advantage of the Summer Solstice by leaving work after 19:00, with enough sunlight to provide lots of visibility through my arrival home by 8 p.m..
