Today I rode on my regular commuting bike (the Schwinn Hybrid) from my house to the downtown library where I locked up my bike while I was at the BARBRI class at the Sheraton (see earlier post), and then after that rode back.

The ride both ways was pretty smooth. The ride to downtown was gorgeous with the sun setting, while the ride back home was pretty fast since downtown has little traffic at night (except for Bricktown, but that’s not really downtown exactly). I definitely think this will work out well by bike. The only real problem today was the wind. The ride home was a bit of a challenge due the cross-wind, which really made you feel like you were going all over the place (not nearly as bad though as driving… early today, when I drove to the S. side I felt like I was getting blown all over the road)
