Yep. Rode to work today.
Yesterday started at 31F and ended at 64F. When I walked out of work last night it was just too gorgeous and I lamented not being on the bike.
So I woke up early (had my trusty wake up call), wriggled into my gear, and headed off into the bewilderingly warm temperature of 35F. Waist up was warm thanks to Gerbings. My legs might have been warmer if I had remembered to zip down the bottom of my pants. Shame on me!
The little temperature display on the computer console blinked at 35F with a little snowflake during most of my ride. I remembered to temper my itchy throttle fingers and be gentle on turns with large painted strips, as they have a tendency to be slippery. I tempered the speed on roundabouts and blind curves in case there was some water seepage or spillage that could cause disaster.
It was a lovely ride, just before traffic started to get really crazy. But I'm really looking forward to the 64F temp on the way home. Yeah, I'm gonna leave a little early and enjoy the day. Have a great weekend everyone! Hope yours starts out as well as mine.
Oh...and my reward for riding...
