how to have a rest day

… whilst still riding one’s bicycle.

1) enjoy 2 cups of coffee. That’s right, read another blog and relax, because it is a rest day and you don’t have to hurry out the door to rest.
2) listen to slow music while you ride. I recommend the soundtrack from the 3rd LOTR – the most slow and sonorous of the lot.
3) leave home late. This forces you to take the direct route to work, not the long, fast, fun route.
4) do not catch and pass other cyclists; well, not unless they are totally lame.

And so it is possible to ride one’s bike to work and not arrive in a lather. But it is not nearly as fun. Looking forward to an effortful day tomorrow.
