|My first (road bike) commute!||SCOOTERINSLC|

|Did my first commute this morning since getting my road bike. I've done it on my mountain-bike often, and expected it to take just over an hour and half. Boy you sure make better time on skinny tires. The numbers aren't great, but I'm a newbie on the road and hope to improve. I'm at the mercy of the traffic light gods, with potentially 35 red lights to contend with, but at 4:00 A.M. they're pretty much green all the way down State Street.
The numbers: 16.8 miles
18.4 MPH avg.
Peace all, Scooter
