Good morning!

Okay, nothing spectacular this morning, per-se, just another successful commute. This makes 12 days so far, out of 21 work days. This definitely isn't the ratio I was shooting for, but it'll get better. We're still in January!

It wasn't quite single digit temperatures this morning, but it was darn cold. I was comfortable the whole ride in, with my thermal base layer, a hoodie, and a windbreaker on top and thermal base layer, flannels, and Dickies work pants on bottom, which are a little thinner than my jeans. I did have to slow down a bit to keep from working up too much of a sweat. It's amazing, as I keep getting to the bus a little faster even when I feel like I'm holding back. I can't wait to get back on my Outlook. I'm kind of planning on building up a Cyclocross bike once my wife and I move. That thing should really get me cooking, and it will probably be my ride for the MS-150 bike tour whenever I finally get fit enough to ride the distance. My initial choice is the Redline Conquest with 105 components. It's a lot like the Trek X0 but more affordable. I'd love to go with the Ti frame Conquest, but I don't think that will happen.

The above photo is my bike parked across from the Town Pavilion and in front of a police van this morning. There were two other police cars nearby, so I'm not sure what the deal was.

Here's a bonus shot of the TransAmerica building (on top of the Town Pavilion)

I went out riding both days this weekend. Like you I have all the clothes, and a good bike. The cold is not that much of an issue.

I just can't force myself to get up at 5 AM. Every evening I wish I had. Any day now, I'll start commuting again.
