Today was an absolutely gorgeous morning. This could be the #1 prettiest daily ride I've had. Or easily in the top 5. I left about 8 am, 45 after sunrise, and the sun angle was perfect. The trees are turning color, the sky was clear, it was a cool 33 F, the winds were south at 6 mph, there was frost on the ground in low-lying areas. The pictures don't do it justice, but it was lovely:
It was also nice on the way home but not the same. The temperature was nice and warm though, 49 F, with winds 12 mph from the SW at noon.
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.
