    Lovely ride to the office today, 15C, sunny, low winds.

    I rode my fixie, and today was the first time I rode the whole way without using the brake. Yay me!

    Another nice ride to the office today. Had an "oh yeah, I'm on a fixie" moment when a squirrel ran across my path and my legs instinctively stopped pedalling, except they didn't.

    Up here in the tundra, our lilacs haven't started blooming yet! The maydays and crab apple trees are resplendent, however.

    Lovely ride in to the office today: sunny, light winds, 5C (41F). It's windy now, but it may be at least partially in my favour for the trip home.

    On these days that I ride before working from my own basement, I think I need to get an earlier start. One road on my favourite route has a couple schools along it, and if I leave too late, it's...

    A cool and breezy pre-work-from-home ride this morning. I'm happy to see that most of the roads have been swept of all the winter sand, just in time for more snow forecast for tonight.

    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...

    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...
