Today I wasn't going to ride my bike but 2 other plans fell through so I got to go to yoga class, yea! It was 1 degree F when I left so I wore the goggles to keep me warm. I wore my thicker ski pants too, and my coldest weather boots and mittens. My hands and feet always get a bit cold but I can warm them up by biking harder. I didn't wear my coldest-weather coat because I get too warm in that. I can definitely tell where the air leaks are on days like today. There's one at my throat and at the bottom of my pants. Gators would take care of the latter but I don't want to hassle with them. I'll save them for -15 F. Here's the start of the bike path, as usual. I'm going to go with smaller pictures to save disk space and upload/download times. I saw a cute muskrat by Starkweather creek on the way home but he ran away by the time I got the camera out. As usual, a lovely day and a lovely bike ride. I say this every day.
From Dec. 22, 2008 to mar. 14, 2010 I posted about my daily commute in Madison, Wisconsin. It was fun to log pictures of the bike path and my brief thoughts and weather conditions throughout the year. Then I got interested in other things and stopped blogging for over a year. I still commute daily, even longer now (7 miles one way) and absolutely love it.
Now I'm blogging my biking experiences while traveling. I love to take my road bike and mountain bike along with me on road trips in the car. It's a great way to see the country and meet locals. It makes business and family trips a lot more fun, in addition to vacations.
