Metal Bike Commuter

In juggling a job, one car, and family obligations

Posted in Uncategorized by metaljaybird on April 15, 2010

We are a one car family, and have been for sometime.  Usually the spring, summer, and fall have been fine for me to ride my bicycle into work.

Unfortunately, due to job responsibilities, I am required to drive my car into work.  This is fine, except, my wife also needs that car to run errands, and to get away from the house when things are crazy.

As a result, I’m looking at the prospect of either spending money I don’t have on a second car (which I would be able to leave parked at the company overnight), or ride less when I know that I won’t be scheduled to go fix a client issue.

If I had the money, I’d buy a cheap used car and keep it parked at the company parking lot.  However, it looks like I will be left to drive into work for the foreseeable future and try to get my riding in during the early mornings.

When life throws you a curve, you have to adjust.
