I doubt I'll ever love waking up in the dark and leaving before sunrise, but you never know, I'll have plenty of opportunity to learn to love it in the next few months. Today wasn't too dark when I left because they sky was pretty clear. At least the temperatures are supposed to be closer to normal this week. Temperature was 44 F, winds 10 mph from the south at 6:53 am. Sunrise was 7:16 am. Here's the start of the bike path at 7 am:
The ride home was excellent. The sun was shining and I had a nice tailwind. The temperature 47 F, winds 8 mph from the SSW at 9 am. huh, it seemed like that more help than that.
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.
