Today at 6:53 am the temperature was 39 degrees F. That's what I like to see! Winds were from the south at 9 mph. So that's a partial tailwind on the first half of the ride, partial headwind on the last (I go northwest and then southwest). Same goes for the ride home, partial tailwind on the first half, partial headwind on the last (northeast, then southeast). I came straight home after exercise class. At 9 am, temperature was 43 F! Winds 11.5 mph from the south. The ride was easy on my faster bike.
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.
