First commute after a couple weeks' vacation. I managed to get a few longish rides in during my time off, but more importantly, I rode several times with my 7-year-old who really latched onto riding...

I usually take it easy on the morning commute, but I felt jazzed this morning and put in a little extra effort, arriving at the office drenched in sweat. It was a nice 15C / 59F. At the bottom of a...

Where are all the commuters today? Is there some kind of holiday or something? :)

Us Canadians had our holiday on Friday, so I'm back to work today. Nice uneventful ride in. I didn't get much...

My company is moving to a new office in a few weeks, and so I "commuted" to the new place to see how the construction was going and make sure the data lines were all being run in the right places...

Nice ride in this morning. I passed a guy on a hill who then chased me the rest of the way up right on my wheel and then passed me back at the top. It's hard to tell under a helmet and sunglasses,...

chilly and damp this morning, thankfully no active precipitation. Rode my rain bike which has platform pedals, and man, it kinda sucks climbing without foot retention.

Another lovely commute this morning, a little chilly on my skinny bare arms, but sunny and no wind.

I'm running the same GI as you, same gears. I'm 160 lbs, so that might help. I'm not great at skid stopping. Practice on dirt or gravel or a wet wooden bridge deck. You're using foot retention right?...

Lovely commute this morning. Sunny, breeze in the right direction (at least for this morning) and cool but not cold. Rode fixed; used my brake once when my foot came unclipped during a skid stop.

Got an early start because I had an early meeting. It rained last night, but the streets looked mainly dry when I looked out the window this morning, so I took a chance and rode my fixie (no...

Another nice commute this morning. My bare arms felt a bit chilled at first (8C/46F) but I warmed up soon enough. Pushed myself a little too hard, perhaps.

Nice weather this morning, and an enjoyable ride in. Might be raining for the trip home, but that would be okay with me - we need rain in a big way. The whole province is pretty much a powder keg.

Lovely morning for a bike ride: sunny, 11C/52F, a little breezy but nothing too arduous. I'm working from home today but did a 18.5km ride before starting. Just about got T-boned by a kid (~12yo) who...

No commute today because I'm working from home, but I did go for a lunchtime bike ride around the block (an 18km block, that is). North winds are pushing down the smoke from those Fort McMurray fires...

We've been having July weather for the last few days, reaching to the high 20's C (low 80's F). Crazy. This morning was a nice 10C and no wind, making for a very pleasant ride in shorts and a...

Sunny and chilly this morning.

I usually commute on a fixie equipped with a front brake, which I have no intention of removing; nonetheless, I have been training myself to slow down and stop using...

On the right side of freezing (barely) and low winds. Had a young lady ask if she could draft me, which was fine, but next time I looked back after a hill I didn't see her anymore. No one has ever...

Cool and breezy this morning, and I'm a bit sore after a tough game of floor hockey last night, so I was slow. I instinctively grabbed my fixie, but between the wind and fatigue, I soon wished I had...

Nice ride in, cool (5C/41F), but wore shorts anyway. Lots of cyclists out this morning, and the bike rack where I lock up was almost completely full when I got there (last week it was almost empty)....

Nice ride in, very pleasant weather (first time in shorts this year). I think Sudbury and Edmonton must have traded springs this year.

Lots of other cyclists out, and a few familiar faces. I...

Rode in a bit later after a dentist appointment (look ma, no cavities!), so it was nice and quiet on the roads. Rode my fixie today, first time this year.

First time this year on a road bike. I was all set to go with my fixed gear, but when I saw the wind forecast for this afternoon, I thought something with lower gears might be a better idea.

Same as Monday: a little below freezing and breezy. My legs are starting to come back, and if I alter my route a bit, I could get away with riding my summer bikes. Might try that next time, as long...
