    Well, I didn't plan to ride today. I was slow getting out of bed, and planned to work from home, so no need for a commute. Often, I'll go for a 18km ride before working from home, but I was too lazy...

    This whole week has been great for cycling here. Cool temps in the morning, warm but not hot in the afternoon, and hardly any wind. I so badly wish I could spend the whole day riding, but work and...

    Working from home today, but "commuted" 18km beforehand anyway. Lovely ride before the breezes picked up.

    I don't think they're attracting as many big names as they did in the last couple years, so maybe it's not getting the international attention it did before.

    Yes, and my thoughts exactly. I'm not really one to "take the lane" most of the time; I'm happy to ride 3-4 feet from the curb, but as I rode, I thought, "screw you drivers, this is what you get for...

    Today is a good day. I got in a ride before work (working from home today), then after lunch, I had to run a couple errands which I did by bike.

    Had a meeting with my boss this morning, but my boss has two offices in different parts of the city. He didn't specify which office, so I guessed, and guessed wrong. Then it was a 30-block hammer in...

    Hey Funky! Welcome back! Are you back on a diamond-frame bike? Last I remember, you were building a tadpole recumbent. How's the leg? any residual issues?

    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.

    Another late start, another hammer into the office, only to find out that the meeting I...

    Wet streets, but no active precipitation. Got off to a late start and had to hammer my way into work this morning so I could make a meeting.

    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.

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

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