Fun Bike Commute
Frozen mustache - Gotta love a headwind!
It was 8 degrees (F) when I left the house, this morning, and it was snowing. When I rode home, it was, again, 8 degrees and snowing (after hitting a high of a balmy 10 degrees). For you Centigraders (Celsiusites?) out there, that's -13C when I was riding, and -12C for a high.
The roads were snowy, rather than icy, and the fat bike worked like a charm on the ride. I was even slower than usual, and it took me an hour to get home, tonight (9 miles). But, I thoroughly enjoyed myself, and that is the best thing that can happen on a commute.
I had forgotten how much I enjoy these snowy, cold rides. Tomorrow, the temperature is supposed to be below zero, in the morning. I look forward to it. I think of it as Adventure Commuting, which makes you feel like you are meeting a challenge head on. Sunny warm commutes are just a bike ride, in comparison...
