Metal Bike Commuter


New Job

Posted in Uncategorized by metaljaybird on October 4, 2011

Since July, I have been unable to ride. Well, I rode practically everyday to the train station during the month of August, but that’s only a two mile round trip, hardly a bike ride, if you ask me.

I found a job as a systems administrator with a small software design team in Morristown, NJ. The building has a parking garage, so I’ll probably drive in the first few days to get used to the commute time via a car, and to get my parking pass, but as soon as possible, I will be riding my bike in. I realize that while I’ve lost 40 pounds from eating right, my body still needs that regular exercise. My mind needs it too. My wife needs it too, as I’m more sane with proper exercise.

As my old job has taken a turn for the worse (well, as I gained more responsibility, which requires client visits all over the NY Metro), I was tempted to look for a new position. This one seemed to just fall into my lap, and I while I’m nervous about the new responsibilities, and being the new guy, I am very excited about a daily commute via the bike, and the opportunity to grow. Also, the paycheck is nothing to cry about.

I hope to update this blog more often as I go along.
