    Pretty nice ride in this morning. Temps were right around freezing, didn't notice any wind. Starting to see a few more bikes out now that the trails are dry and the temperatures are going up.

    Last night I "commuted" to a floor hockey game on my bike, does that count for this thread? The fun part was figuring out how to carry a hockey stick on a bike; ended up bungie strapping it to the...

    Arg. Unlocked my bike for the ride home, discovered the front tire was flat. Found a tiny hole on the rim side of the tube. Rim tape was in place, no idea how the flat occurred. Pulled a new tube out...

    A bit chilly at -4C/25F, but a nice, uneventful ride in. Got passed by a gentleman several years my senior, but he seemed to peter out at the bottom(?) of a hill, and I passed him back. Go me! Trails...

    It's been such an unusually balmy March, so I swapped the studded tires for slicks on my commuter last weekend, and naturally, it snowed this week. April Fools gag by mother nature, I guess. Most of...

    That's what I've been doing for the last couple years, at least on nice days. It's not so bad. I get to ride some much more interesting routes instead of the same thing every day.

    First cycle-commute of 2015, but only the second time I actually had to go to the office, so 1 out of 2 isn't too bad.

    -8C/18F this morning, noticeably colder in the valley. My fingers got quite...

    2014 was a write-off for me, which I knew going in. I'm working from home on average 4 days/week, so that killed my commuting mileage compared to previous years, and increased family commitments and...

    First bicycle commute in over a month. It's been too easy to take the bus on the few days that I actually go to the office. We had a ton of snow fall a couple weeks back, but nothing much since. By...

    I opted for my road bike today, which was perhaps not the wisest of choices, since the rain yesterday didn't completely dry, and at just below freezing, there was a thin layer of ice on some sections...

    How was it riding in the snow? A couple years ago I rode home in 2" of snow that had fallen during the day and it was a tough slog, taking over twice the usual time to get home.

    I think I need to re-learn how to dress for cool weather every fall. 3C/37F this morning, and while my legs were okay with just shorts, my fingers were quite cold under my thin gloves.

    Brisk breeze from the south this morning, which was mainly to my benefit, at least for the ride in. Maybe a bit cool for a t-shirt at 13C/55F.
