This morning’s commute was even colder, with no degrees at all (0 Fahrenheit), although it wasn’t windy like it was yesterday morning, so not as bad. I was a little more comfortable than yesterday since I removed the inner liner jacket. But I was still too warm by the time I got to work. It’s tough to get things just right, but overall I’ve been surprised at how pleasant my cold commutes have been yesterday and today. I could use some goggles, though. I’d need some that fit over my glasses.
The roads are still in pretty good shape, since nothing has had a chance to melt and then re-freeze. Even the bike path is decent, it has a layer of snow on it but it’s fluffy, not sticky, and my knobby tires grip the path under the snow fairly well. But with a high of 27 degrees today, I’m a little worried some of that will melt, and then freeze overnight. I may have an icy ride to work tomorrow.
