I just got back from vacation in Florida. I brought my bike down and I'll post my bike rides from there over the next few days. It was fun. This morning I was back to biking here in Wisconsin. It was nice to get out in the sunshine. I was already feeling I needed to get out after riding in the car for our trip home and being indoors all yesterday. Fortunately, the sun was shining and the birds were teeming (compared to a few weeks ago). The red-winged black birds are back, and I saw a robin too. The cardinals and chickadees were singing, and a bunch of other birds whose songs I don't recognize. Here's the start of the bike path this morning at 8 am:
The temperature was 40 F, winds 13 mph from the north. By habit I dressed too warm. Tomorrow I'll change out my coat for a lighter one.
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.
