I have been thinking about riding to work on occasion and did a dry run yesterday. It is 13.8 miles with 8.8 being paved and 5 of it gravel. There is 700’ of elevation and I made it in one hour and 4 minutes. Most of the pavement is rural highway with a large gravel shoulder and a small amount is a bike trail. All the gravel is old farm roads. I ride a ‘19 Roscoe 8 on the stock knobbies. I’ll need a light set as I will have to leave around 4:45 in the morning to make it on time. The only thing I am unsure of is busting up a huge sweat before work. We don’t have showers at work so I’m on the fence! I always carry a backpack with tools and such so packing a change of clothes might be in order. I’m just so undecided!
