We got about 1-2" of snow overnight but thankfully the bike path was plowed. All praise the Bike Path Plow Gods! I decided to go to yoga class on Wednesday and that starts an hour later than my other class so I get to ride in daylight, yea! It was about 1 degree F with winds out of the northeast about 15 mph and still some flurries falling. Fortunately that wasn't a headwind until my ride home--and only on half the ride. I'm kind of glad my route goes in two directions (first northwest, then southwest on the trip out), because then I don't get a direct headwind on the entire route. I had my full gear on and I was hot! Except for my toes. I gotta do something about the toes. Getting my core hot does keep my fingers warm but I get sweaty and that starts making my goggles fog--otherwise, they don't fog at all even over glasses. However, tomorrow and the next day are going to be frickin' cold so I will wear the full gear for two more days. I'll post about the gear next.
It cleared up nicely during yoga and was a beautiful ride home, even with the headwind. At left in this picture are the railroad tracks next to the bike path. I guess they plow those too.
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.
