    I have reached commuting nirvana

    Started a new job this week. My PT clinic is inside of the YMCA that I am a member at. 4.25 miles, bike rack, indoor parking for winter time. Showers, spa, pool, workout facility (obviously), and about 25 yds from my locker in the lockerroom to the door of my workplace.

    Ooh, showers. My clinic (I'm a PT as well) sadly has no such facilities, nor is there a nearby gym to take advantage of. My commute is about as short at 6.5 miles, so if I shower at home and leave early enough that I don't have to hammer to make it in on time, I usually smell better than my patients ;)

    I do have the luxury of being able to keep the bike in the clinic, so no worries about leaving it locking it up outside, exposing it to unsavory elements (and Vermont weather).

    The nice thing about a short commute is that when I ride home during the afternoon rush, it's usually faster than if I were driving, and I have the option to extend the ride by running errands or taking one of the many "long way"s home.
