Now that sunshine bookends your workday, it's the perfect time to give bike commuting a try. You'll have a whole hour or two of daylight to get home (enough to ride 10-20 miles, even at a genteel pace) before visibility becomes a concern. Even so, be sure to use bright, attention-grabbing blinky lights as dusk approaches. The ride will give you a fresh perspective on your commute and on the folks you share the road with. Also, the fresh air and exercise helps clear your mind and ease the mental transition from work to home (pedal away your stress).
