dec. 30 ride

I was back to my early schedule today so started out about 35 minutes before sunrise.  It was about 20 degrees F with winds about 10-15 from the southeast.  Back in November, that seemed very cold.  Now it's in the realm where I don't have to wear my goggles so I consider that warm.  There were ice patches on the path so I'm so glad I have the studded tires.  Here's my daily start of the bike path:
The Yahara river looks different every day.  It had a nice sheen towards the sun (and Lake Monona).
It was a nice ride as usual.  Met a friend for breakfast on the way home.


  1. Reminds me of my daily commute in Philadelphia. I rode a mountain bike with studded tires through the winter. Temps about the same as you report. Lots of traffic too. I miss those days.

  2. Fortunately, I get to avoid traffic for most of my ride, except when crossing streets.
