In the not so distant past I was going to bed early (early for me, anyway) and getting up to start the day off with a 5AM workout at my CrossFit box or getting on my bike trainer and putting in some miles to prep for the weekend for a Friday or Saturday morning ride with friends and family. It wasn't a tight schedule, but a schedule nonetheless.

I must confess, for several months, I have been hesitant to get out on the road in this new town. The roads are unfamiliar and rarely have a shoulder and I am unsure of the driving habits of the local motorists. After working up the nerve and scouting out several roads, I decided that I would venture out and explore. I did my usual bike safety check and made sure I had my emergency information handy (driver's license, insurance card, credit card, cash, Road ID) and informed my wife of the route I was taking and struck out on the open road. I must say that once I got rolling, the exhilaration of being on the bike came flooding back and it was fun once again.
