New home. New commute. New bike?

Anyone who knows me is well aware of the fact that I moved recently. Buying your own place can be very exciting, but it also dominates your world for a while. My friends have probably heard enough about it already… Part of moving, though, is figuring out your new routines. Lots of…

New year, new me? Nah…

Yes, it’s that time of year. A holiday season that for many is filled with friends and family, traditional holiday food (hopefully including cookies), time away from the office, travel, movies, laughter, reflection and overindulgence.
