I realize it’s nothing like winter outside, but with the leaves down I saw this pastoral appalachian view on the way in this morning. Except this view is by Noblestown Road, 3 miles from the Point, amazing;

Saw 2 other commuters on Noblestown Road this morning, anybody here?

Me! But I think I was probably earlier than you since the sun is just barely up when I leave. That means there were at least 4 bike commuters on Noblestown today. Not bad at all!

dammit, i decided i was going to pretend it wasn’t cold today so i consciously refused to put on my gloves. i “won” but it was not pleasant, so i’m not sure that’s really a “win”.

I have a rain gauge in the yard. To empty yesterday’s rain, I first had to thaw all the ice in it, so I knew it was chilly. But it wasn’t two-layers-of-gloves chilly.

Best thing about winter… having hot radiators to dry all my cycling gear on after getting caught in a downpour.

@benzo it has been so warm this winter our radiators are rarely hot, generally only in the morning when the thermostat kicks it up 5 degrees.

I did this today two, but with my pant legs. shouldn’t have rolled both of them up.

My general rule is that if it’s under 50 degrees, I wear gloves, even if I take them off after I’m done going downhill.

I keep glove-liners in my pack even in the summer. On a bike, if it’s 50 and raining I want gloves.
