    Yesterday was wet in the morning, just puddles, no rain, but cold and raw. Then it was supposed to be warm with a south wind (tail wind) for my ride back. Well that didn't happen. It stayed from the...

    Man, it was cold yesterday. I had on the wrong gloves and my fingers were freezing. It was pretty windy, too. I really had to force myself to ride, but as always, I'm glad I did it.

    I made the decision that I wasn't commuting in the dark this year, so I'm missing it. It's been a month already. I still have plenty of time to ride, but I miss the gas savings, and the way I feel...

    I finally got back on the bike after 2 weeks off. That's the most time I've taken off since 2009. I felt like I needed to replenish my energy, so I didn't go into the guilt zone that not riding...

    I really had to force myself to ride today. It was drizzling this morning, and I had readied the wrong bike for rain. I also had a few errands I needed to run before work. But I knew the wind was...

    Yesterday's commute was good. I took the long way in the morning, and rode hard at night. Had a guy pass me who said he was really trying hard to catch me, and that I inspired him to go faster. That...

    I rode to Wilco last night. They were awesome! I almost didn't go because it looked like rain (it was outdoors) but I am so glad I went. The rain just made it more fun. They are so good live. So much...

    I would have driven, too. At those temps, it's too easy to get heat stroke.

    My boss says I only go to work so I can ride there. It definitely makes the day better.

    It was a perfect ride in yesterday. Stopped at the lbs to bother the guys, and still got to work early. Then right before I was leaving, I could hear thunder. I am not a wimp, I ride in rain, but...

    It is 93 right now. I may have mastered commuting in the heat. I got to work hardly sweaty. It took an easy pedal stroke, and effortless effort. Today was not a day to even think about riding fast.

    Finally an awesome commute today. Wind in the right direction, warm, and no one did anything jerky. I even made decent time. Oh, and the street sweepers came! Better than winning the lottery. :)

    One of those days yesterday. Started by almost getting hit by my upstairs neighbor in our back lot. She slammed on the brakes and wasn't even that close, but it was awkward.

    Then on the bike path,...

    I took mine off last week, and it snowed yesterday, of course. I was probably premature.

    A body was hidden in a sweet potato delivery truck, and the killer had to dig to find it because his unique lapel pin was stuck in the corpse's hand. ;)

    Okay, I stole that from Hitchcock.

    Or, they could have been left on the roof of the car when he was loading in the giant heart shaped box of chocolates.

    Either way, it's sad.

    Great commute for me yesterday. Parked my car at work and rode to radiation, which is only 5 miles, but at least it's all uphill coming back. I'm really glad I rode. It's a lot of effort to bring my...

    No, you did the right thing. Better safe than sorry when it comes to severe storms. You don't want to end up telling your story on "I Survived" (if you're lucky :eek:).
