Winter, I apologize. I'm glad you are finally here.
Welcome to winter.
Gotta tell you it actually hasn't been that bad.
Although this morning was kind of a downer since I rode into a 15-20 MPH headwind all the way into work and was totally sweaty by the time I got there! It is such a fine line on finding what I need to be wearing for which conditions.
One of the tribulations that the FWBC deals with I guess.
This time of year I watch a lot of weather channel to find out what I need to have on in the morning.
Above is a picture of me and my daughter the other morning. It was about 20 degrees F when I left the house.
I finally found a jacket that served the needs of the easily seen and is quite high performance as well. It is paper thin and the only thing I had on under was my work shirt! It is crazy. Gore bike Wear. I am amazed at how sweet it is. And then my fluorescent orange smow board pants have been great as well.
It has taken awhile to get to get it through my thick skull that I don't need to be wearing much clothing but now that I have my commute has been much more enjoyable.
Good luck to all of you who are still riding and keep it up. I actually am glad that it finally got cold whereas a month ago I was totally depressed about it.
