It's definitely lighter at 7 am. yes! Sunrise is 7:18 am now. It was 3 degrees F with calm winds when I left. I wore my goggles both ways. It keeps me much warmer. On the way home it was 7 F, with winds 7 mph from the NW (tailwind on the last 2 miles home). The sun was trying to poke through a thin layer of clouds. This picture is underexposed but still looks kind of cool:
I'm still fascinated by the grodyness of my chain, but these pictures don't show the color the same as on my computer, not as orange.
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.
