How is your bicycling weather?

How is your bicycling weather?

Parker, CO 10/29/2009

19" so far, officially. More on the way. Got stuck in the car this morning - could not see the curb in a big parking lot, so, drove right over the cement curb with my Neon. Glad I had my snow shovel and kitty litter. Rocked the car out with a push from another guy. Side streets so slick one could ice skate.

The city is pretty much closed down.

Hey snow God, it is only October.

So, how is YOUR bicycling weather?

Most of the fall has been the same. Wet, wet, wet.
I'll do cold but not wet.

A little brisk this morning -- note the current temperature of 48 degrees. Other than that, another hoe-hum day in paradise!

EDIT: Found out you can't say "hoe" with just the first two letters. Came up with astericks!

No rain in the ten day forecast. Highs around 80 through Saturday then just under 70 for several days. Of course, there will be a completely different forecast by Saturday.

Weather is relative. I commute to work on a bicycle and recently moved to California from Maine. In Maine I would use the bike with temps over 0F and as long as the ice/snow on the road was not too deep. This morning in San Jose, the temp was 45, and there was a light breeze, many people at work were surprised that I was still riding my bike in the 'winter'.

It was cool yesterday, 50s and 60s, but cool to me is not all that cool to my son in Colorado Springs. The last three club rides were rather nice.

We've actually had a very dry autumn. Warmer than average this week.
We only get snow about once a year. A few inches at most.

As if a giant cow had serious diarrhea except the cow's contribution would at least be warm.

Perfect riding conditions here as long as you don't mind riding in the rain. Seriously, the temps are perfect, but the rain just keeps coming.

It was 39 F when I went for my ride at 4:30 this morning. Only supposed to get to 65 or so today. Cold for Phoenix in October. Supposed to be close to 80 by Saturday, though.

Pretty cool, wet, and depressing around here. I kinda wish it would either get a few degrees colder as I like dealing with snow better than rain, or maybe just dry up a bit. Sigh.

Half inch? I heard there was a foot on the beach again? Poor taste, I know.

11 degrees C here. Overcast but no rain although the "Colorado Low" is supposed to drop some rain over the next few days.

Cool here, in the high 60's to low 70's. Lots of sunshine and a cool breeze off the ocean. Practically perfect in every way . . .

+15f

Cool and about 8" of snow. Got the studded tires (Nokia 294) on yesterday and gave them a short workout. The icy bumps are the biggest pain in the ride, but the studs grip the ice well and the tires work well in snow.
