It started out at 1 degree F and strong northwest wind which is a headwind for the first half of my ride. I had all my warm clothes on including the goggles. On the way home it was even colder but the winds were lighter. Today's ride seemed slow. Maybe the bike didn't want to go, the path seemed to have more friction, and I was wearing all those clothes. My warmest jacket seems to weight a lot. We had 3" of snow yesterday but it was plowed this morning. But it was still better than driving. I drove tonight to a meeting and froze. I get colder in the car than on bike. I don't have a great heater for one thing. Oh, my feet got cold on the bike on the way home. I could use some heated socks. It's supposed to snow again overnight. I hope I can bike tomorrow.
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.
