It was a brisk 22 degrees F at 7:53 am, but the winds were calm so it was very pleasant. And the birds make it very interesting. So many sounds, so many birds. I must have seen a hundred robins. I finally appreciate this time of year when there are no leaves on the trees because you can see more birds. I used to think it was the ugly time of year with the brown grass and leafless trees. Here's the start of the bike path.
On the way home I rode by the lake. Temperature was 31 F and winds 8 mph from the SE. There's lots of open water now, by the shore line anyway:
The ducks like to hang out at the boundary between the water and ice. I wonder why.
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.
