How was your commute to work today?
« on: January 17, 2011, 12:44:00 PM »
Mine hasn't happened yet. And I'm probably going to drive. But I'm definitely getting my fat ass to work via bicycle at least once or twice this week.

Today would have been good, but it's a scheduled day off. Tomorrow and Thursday are recovery days, but it's supposed to snow or rain. I'll ride in the rain, but not in January. I still need to figure out how to work commuting into a training plan. Can I ride on rest days?

I don't see why not, so long as it's an active recovery day.

I meant a rest day, day off. I would think no, but I've never trained by a strict plan.

My commute is only 14 miles, each way, so unless my coach told me to not move at all, I didn't worry about it that much.

I'd love to have something to report but the weather continues to be uncooperative. This morning walking was enough of a challenge, I can't imagine anyone riding in that mess. I'm hoping the warmer temperatures will get rid of most of the snow for next week.

It was a pleasant commute today strictly because I could. Wind from the west at about 25, and low 30's for temps. It felt good to be able to ride to work.

I'm hoping to ride in tomorrow...supposed to be low to mid 40s when I'll be riding in...hope its sunny, and not too windy.

Cold, wet and I had to walk part of it. It seems that nobody thought to plow the bike path going into Chilli, and I didn't think to throw cx tires on, so a good mile of my ride was walked in winter crocs.

This thread really doesn't want me to reply to you. Let's try again -

Congrats on the first actual ride report!

Hanging my head in shame. Rode to work this am, but within the hour I was to leave, it snowed, temps dropped 20 degrees down to 18, and the roads iced up. Left the bike at work, and took a company vehicle home. First time I have rolled the dice and lost.

I'm really disappointed in myself for not riding in to work yesterday. Stuff came up, but still...

Mine is only a few miles these days, but with the snow Wednesday afternoon yesterday's usual 10 minutes turned into a very sketchy 25.


Roads are clear now, though. Happy days.
