    Nice ride in this morning, mid 30s. High is in the 50s today, so it should be nice except for the forecast 20mph headwind. :lol:

    The hole doesn't look too big. I'd keep riding on it, but might put a patch on that spot of the tube as a bit of extra protection.

    I hate my Gatorskins too. I've gotten three flats in <1000 miles...

    Bike lanes make no sense in cities, where traffic speed is often the same or slightly higher as a bicyclist.

    I do wish we had more bike lanes on arterials, where traffic is often 3-4x the speed of...

    Cold morning and cloudy. Chance of rain this afternoon.

    I haven't seen any other riders out yet. I'm sure it will happen soon, once the weather warms up a bit. 50F seems to be most people's limit...

    Hope your recovery goes well. Maybe time to practice the quick turn? I don't know how effective it would be at 35mph, but it would have at least put you sideways to distribute the impact.

    A bit chilly this morning...about 30F when I left. Hopefully things warm up soon so I can get my vegetable garden started. I want to get some spinach before the weather gets too hot.

    No ride today due to snow. I'll more than make up for it tomorrow by riding into the city for my Traffic Skills 101 road test.

    Big headwind riding home yesterday, although not as strong as Tuesday. Light wind today, but colder than it has been in a while. Upper 20s. We're supposed to get 5-8" of snow tomorrow, so this may be...

    Super headwind going home yesterday. 20mph steady with gusts up to 40mph. It was pretty rough.

    Still a bit windy this morning, but not nearly as bad. The direction shifted a bit, so hopefully I...

    I just had a co-worker tell me that it's too cold to ride. It's 60F outside and sunny. :facepalm: He went on to say that he rides about one month a year.

    This is at a company that pays...

    That's a really short ride. You will get sweaty on hot summer days (>75F), but a change of clothes and some deodorant will handle that.

    A backpack is going to make your back sweaty no matter what....

    Yes, color is very important for low visibility times. I've found that the green gets the best response. The reflective strips are for at night. Movement or not, when a car's headlights hit me, I...

    My Gators puncture pretty easily. The gravel that the snow plows throw down on the roads can get stuck to the tire on wet days and then gradually work its way in to the tube on every rotation.

    I picked up a $5 vest at Home Depot. I wear it if visibility is impaired (fog, rain, dawn/dusk, dark). It's big enough that it fits over my jacket in the winter.

    Dropped the tax return off at the post office on the way to work, so I got an extra mile or two. Weather is absolutely perfect. Mid 30s, no wind. It's supposed to get near 60F today. Some flowers are...

    My only time was a lady who started up from a stop sign as I was in front of her. Just enough speed to knock the bike out from under me. No damage, no injuries. Boy was she freaked out though! She...

    Too hot for my long sleeves on the ride home last night. I brought a t-shirt today so I can wear that instead. Spring is coming! I'm enjoying the birdsong along my ride. Lots of cardinals, finches,...

    Where did you hear that? I've gotten one pinch flat for every 15 pieces of gravel and glass working their way through the tire.

    A little bit of ice on the edge of the road this morning, but I was able to avoid it. Felt colder than yesterday, but that could be because my new rain pants were letting in all of the cold air. I...

    DST doesn't affect me this time of year since the sun rises well before I leave the house. I still don't understand why we have it.
