Annually this time of year, I volunteer to drive the Salvation Army Bell Ringers to their destinations. I like to ride my bike the six miles to the office. It’s usually my introduction to winter riding.
When I left home at 8 AM this morning, the temperature was around 33F accompanied by a stiff wind making the wind chill a brisk 28F. Buuuuut the sun was shining which made the ride quite comfortable. I was also dressing in layers, and because of that, I arrived at the office perspiring. Quite a bit. The ride home at 11AM was much better with that stiff wind at my back. Tomorrow will be a bit cooler but without the wind.
Winter riding. I do like it a lot. I’m not a fan of indoor trainers so when the conditions are not conducive to bike riding, I do a lot of walking.
One thought on “Annual Bike Commute”
John, I’m with you regarding riding in the winter. I’ve learned how to keep warm and will ride as much as possible though I have my limits. “I don’t do slippery.”
