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?

Aren't we being a little pessimistic?  ;-)

There is still plenty of great, comfortable riding weather left. I won't be putting the studded tires on until the end of November!

Winter is Coming.

It was a glorious day to ride a bike, but it seemed a little fallish.  I was with Erin Rensink today at the Renegade Craft Fair where she has a booth and is selling her cycling caps.  Lots of great choices if you are ready to think about winter riding, but some nice summer caps, too.  So you can choose--summer/winter.  Just ride you bike!

Yikes! Friday forecast for steady wind just over 30 mph and gusting to over 40 mph.  That might be a bit challenging.

Not fun.

Wow - CCM will leave costume bits in its wake!

My studded tires just arrived yesterday. Looking forward to trying them out in a month or so!

Glad for you, but could we hold off on the snow a bit more than a month? :-)

Eh, although I said "looking forward" it's not like I actually am hoping to have to use them. I would be happy if it didn't snow at all!

Will be riding the entire year again.  Rode in shorts earlier this week.  Yeah, that lasted about a day.  Actually had to break out the warm gloves and ear covering today.  Hoping to avoid a polar vortex season like we had last year.

also hoping we skip the polar vortex this year too!

Is anyone else already getting the "how much longer will you be riding?" I don't think it has even gotten below 40 in the city, and I am still just putting a couple of layers under my lightweight jacket when it gets below 50!
