1st Cycling Commute!

Friday, April 15, 2011

FINALLY! A day when I'm not working late and it isn't raining!

Chilly 30 degree morning, but cycling always keeps me warm. Sunny blue skies keeping me company...woo hoo!

I was a bit too intent in scrutinizing the road for flat-making debris so I didn't realize quickly enough that fellow Sparker TEAMAEGIS was cycling northbound on Front St. as I was heading southbound...didn't get a "wave" hello in! Caught up later via

It's always great to see other cyclists out on the road, but a fellow Sparker and bike club member commuting to work the same time I cool is THAT? :-)

I am so glad that your weather is where you can get out. Can you send me some of that blue sky & some warm temps so my snow will stop and the 4 feet that I still have will melt.

Really glad that you could get out & ride.

    I'm anxious to start riding my bike to work. The only problem is that we got another 5 inches of snow today. It won't last long, so I hope to be out riding soon.
Keep on peddling.

Finally, a great day to get out and ride your commute. Isn't it a good feeling as if Spring is ACTUALLY starting?? LOL!
Glad you got there. And funny with the lack of run-in with your fellow Sparker. There's always Monday!!!
