Annual Bike Commute


DSCN8351Annually 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.
