It never really ceases to amaze me how different a commute can feel when you do it in the opposite direction … my return route is slightly longer (and thus slightly flatter) than my morning commute, but it always seems to hurt so much more than the morning ride. You’d kind of think that with 8 hours of recovery time between the two, plus the excitement of leaving work and going home would make the evening commute more enjoyable … but no. It still sucks. Maybe that’s why I don’t commute by bike more often … it’s not the getting up early to get to work; it’s getting home afterwards that I don’t enjoy.
