Rode the 606 on Thursday & Friday after work and wow, what a difference! The temperature goes down 10 degrees, we get a little wind, and half the Walking Dread disappears! If that's how they react to temps in the 50s, how many will be left when it's in the 40s? Very few, I imagine. And when highs are in the 30s, there will only be a few bike commuters, plus those guys who ride the trail back and forth (I can't call it a 'training ride' as they are under 20 mph), and the joggers. I expect the joggers to stay. They seem pretty committed.

Or has the weather freaked everyone out, because the change was so sudden? One day it was summer, then it got cold at the same time the sun started to set early (and after the Supermoon left). Saturday early afternoon, one woman huddled inside the train station to wait for the bus, instead of waiting outside, and wore a winter jacket. An aberration? Except several people waited inside the ramp area for the train, also. Did the TV weather people scare everyone again?

When I was on 606 on a weekday, I found it really nice - very few people out. Nice to hear the weather has cleared the trail and made it an enjoyable ride.
