    Grabbed the usual fixie for the the commute but noticed some weirdness in the front tire (hard to explain), so I rode my old Bianchi instead. It's a great bike that doesn't get enough love. Very...

    60F is cold? it was 65 for my commute this morning, and I was quite warm! 60F is ideal riding temps, IMHO.

    I don't envy the heat some of you guys are experiencing! In these parts, it's conceivable to go all year without hitting 30C/86F, which is just fine with me, though we have a forecast of low-30's...

    Cool, with wet streets from an early morning rain, but no active rain during the commute.

    We could certainly use the rain that some of you guys are tiring of around here. That said, this morning's ride was perfect under sunny skies and almost no wind. This is one of those days where I...

    For some reason, I woke up 1/2 hour before my alarm and was wide awake, so I got an early start. Saw more commuters than usual on my route - maybe on average cycle commuters in my city are early...

    Nice little pre-work ride today, 13C, negligible wind. Noticed a bit of excess float in my left shoe/pedal, and and later in the ride, found I couldn't clip in. Pulled over, and discovered a very...

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

    Just a couple km round trip to a co-worker's place to fix some computer issues. Better than nothing, I guess.

    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.

    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.
