Getting Cooler: Pros and Cons

The days are getting shorter and the mornings are getting colder.


  • I have a really good excuse to carry (and drink) coffee on the bike again.
  • If I dress properly, I can show up to work sweat-free but not freezing.
  • The sun becomes a problem. It's rising and setting during heavy traffic.
  • Cool mornings and mild afternoons mean carrying two sets of clothes.
I used my Cold Gear Chart to see what would work best for the 48° morning ride and I wasn't let down. What works for 51° worked great this morning. I must say that it was more enjoyable with Coffee By Bike, thanks to my wonderful bike-bottle french press.

I'm fortunate that I arrive downtown before the sun comes up and blinds me this time of year, but it'll probably be close to blinding by the time I get home this evening. It was nice to get the full ride in to work today.
