Daily Commute

About 10 days ago I hit a cement obstruction with the car (ugh) in a parking lot (it's only about 10" high and I couldn't see it!) and we've been managing with one car since then. It should be back on the road today, but meanwhile I've had the chance to bike to work a few times. I'm lucky that I live so close to the library and am able to get there in less than 15 minutes by bike! First, I head down the road and down this big hill...
Then I hop onto our bike trail. It's one of those converted rail-to-trail bike paths, and just down the road from our house!
Then I stay on the path for a while, probably less than a mile. It's very shady and quiet, a nice way to start the day.
Finally, I cross Rte. 6 and head up a small hill and I'm on Lake Mahopac! Another short trip down the road and I'm there! It's a nice morning trip, but it's dependent on the weather, which has not been very cooperative lately. Also, I'm not always as energetic on the way home, after a long day at work.
...And I've got to get back up that hill!
