Today I was tired so went to yoga instead of my exercise class--though it's not clear that my 1.5 hour yoga class is really easier than my exercise class--but I got to sleep an extra 45 minutes. It was a balmy 14 degrees F with winds 7 mph from the SW. On the way home it was 19 F with winds 9 mph from the SW. I didn't wear my goggles and it felt good to have wind on my face, though it was a shock going down the long hill from my house---my eyes watered up and my eyelashes must have got caught in the tears and stuck to my eye or something because it hurt, but it was only temporary. Wearing the goggles seems to make it feel about 10 or more degrees warmer to me. I got some groceries and had a pleasant ride home in the bright sunshine. I might have to start wearing my sunglasses. I'm reluctant to, figuring I need all the bright sunshine I can get this time of year.
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.
