Wake up. Bleary eyes. Still dark outside. Eat some coffee. Drink a cup of cereal. Snarfle down a bagel. Get dressed. Hop on bike. Go outside.
YOWZA! It is cold these mornings on bike, but I love it!
Nothing wakes me up as well as a brisk ride in to work. Coffee can't get me that alert. Couple the cold with daily close calls provided by SUV drivers brushing up against me while I try to avoid the ice and slush and there, my friends, is a recipe for full wakefulness int he morning.
