Brandon's First Commute

Brandon moved home from Austin TX a couple of months ago with a promise of a job at a local shipyard.  That fell through but he did land a position at a smaller boatyard in Mattapoisett, MA.   It's only five miles from the house so commuting by bike is really a no-brainer.    

I asked to ride with him on his first day and he OK'd it.  There is a Dunkin Donuts close to his work place so naturally I stopped for a hot coffee and because I was on my bike,  a bagel for second breakfast.   

P.S.   We are most likely going to ride the Erie Canal in July.   Stay tuned. 

Feeling good at 7AM

The rolled up pant leg is considered hipster I'm told.

Just a home on Lighthouse Rd. 

Dunkin Donut and second breakfast. 


  1. That looks like a nice commute - and it's nice to get the exercise in. I have a really long commute, but I still manage to ride for some of it. I drive part of the way, and then ride the last 5 miles or so. I keep a bike that folds in my trunk just so I can do it. But it really gets rid of the "no time for exercise" excuse.

  2. Alex: I had a 40 mile commute for 7 years. I drove 30 to a local mall and rode the last 10 on city streets and back roads to the office. The biking part was usually the highlight of my day.

  3. Retired, Dunkin donuts (we have a couple amazing local establishments, so I can do better, but DD ain't too bad), and bike riding. Damn!

  4. Steel-toed boots on a road bike – now that is hip!

    I need to adjust my route to include a second donut breakfast.
