As some of you on this forum, I commute by bike partially for environmental reasons. I believe climate change is happening, and while I don't pretend that my bike commuting by itself is doing much, I do it because I believe it is appropriate for me.
Sure enough, we have had a warmer than average winter so far here in Maine. Several times recently I have gotten comments at work from people to who know I bike all winter such as "You must be liking this weather, huh?" Truth be told, I do appreciate not having to bundle up quite so much or struggle with snow and ice, but it still doesn't seem right. Intellectually, I'd rather have the normal climate. But it struck me tonight how ironic it is that here I am pedalling for environmental reasons while my motoring co-workers figure I'm happier with the changing climate because it interferes less with my riding!
