The Chainlink

Traffic 'round these parts dropped off pretty dramatically a few weeks ago... hard to tell from the "I rode today" thread who's still riding, as one would have to conclude that Gene is the only one out there most days by reading it....

Who's sticking it out and plans to continue to ride pretty much every day regardless of weather?

I felt a little sorry for a couple soggy riders I saw on the way in this morning. At least it was warm!

No need to feel sorry for us! It was very warm and a wonderful ride.

It was just a *little* sorry. :-)

I was dry, but a little sweaty. Six of one...

No doubt! Don't mind a little sogginess.  That is why I keep towels at the office. 

Oddly, I saw a bizarre number of other cyclists on my way home from Forest Park last night (~ 2 AM). One even came very close to buying it while apparently trying to pass me on my right on 26th street.

First string of hot days and we go to Winter 2015? :-)

It's a restless group, these chainlinkers.

Next thing we know someone will be putting up the Christmas lights.

First day I didn't notice the sweat!  HAHA!

But totally worth it.  I loved passing the 2x as long line of traffic as I cruised to work.  Took me no extra time despite the rain and I am waterproof so only the clothes needed drying.

I saw one cyclist on the ride in this morning(6:30ish). It was somewhat of a refreshing ride.

It was raining Thursday morning, but that afternoon it was like riding through a car wash!
