I really love my commute


Spokane really is a beautiful city.


At two miles, my commute each day is fairly short.


But the highlight, both morning and night....


Is crossing that roaring river


twice.


And it's also really cool ...


how I can journey to France


without ever leaving Spokane.


The wind through my hair, the pavement flying by below


When you ride a bicycle, it really is true ...


the sky's the limit.

Yes, the river. One of the things pulling me there.

Cross-check power!

Fab post, Rachel, I think you hit a collective nerve. And the bike rack pic 'specially rules.

This is exactly why I chose to live here and exactly why I commute to work! Thanks for sharing!
