As the New Year approaches, it tends to be "goal-making" time. Some goals are lofty, some are day-to-day. May we suggest you make one of your goals to implement "The Lunch-time Ride?" Whether you work from home or an office, whether you are on a training plan or not, whether your co-workers are "cycling supportive" or very, very confused, you can take 60 minutes of your day to get outside. Studies show (from places like...Harvard...and NPR and such) that employees who take mental and physical breaks throughout the day, are naturally happier, healthier and more efficient than those that don't!
Here's an example we love from the folks at Yeti Cycles (based in Golden, CO). Let the phone ring. Better yet, leave it at the office. You can eat when you get back. Just get out there and ride. We promise you'll be happy you did.
