After the wind and the rain pounded my house last night, I slept in an extra 20 minutes thinking I was going to drive today. It was nice to get up and see that it was calm and the streets were mostly dry. I then decided to bike in and was OK with being 20 min late to work. The sun came out 5 minutes into my commute. I think I'll leave an hour early so that I can catch some more sun before it sets.
Riding in this morning from around 6:15 - 6:45 am it was too warm to wear anything other than a T shirt (although I was wearing winter weight gloves, a hat, and legwear). 55 F, according to Weather Underground. I would have roasted if I had worn my high visibilty jacket.
It was 48F on my ride to work this Tuesday Morning. I planned ahead and didn't wear my winter hat, and only wore a t-shirt under my hi-vis jacket. I was still overdressed but the commute was nice as was the Sunrise.
I am curious what my ride home will be like.

The ride home tonite around 6PM from Bellevue to Woodinville on the Samammish River Trail was ripping! Several times I was riding at 25MPH without even really pedalling too hard. I was feeling sorry for the cyclists I saw coming in the other direction.
