Bike path at about 6:50 am. Sunrise is now 7:07 am. Temperature was 7 degrees F, winds 13 mph from the south! so a tailwind on the first half of the ride, headwind on the second. After class and grocery shopping, loaded up with groceries, the temperature was up to 15 F, winds 17, gusting to 24 mph. So I had a headwind on the way home and guess what, I didn't mind. Why you ask? Because I had to hole up in my home office and work on a big deadline. So I relished the ride even more than usual. so let's stop at the Yahara river and check that out. looking towards the southeast:
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.
