And finally, the #1 reason to commute by bike (if a sunrise like that won’t get you out of your car, I don’t know what will). Captured this morning on the way to work…

That must be awesome. My ride to work is pitch black.
Can you post a pic of your bike loaded for commuting, along with info on the gear you use?
I am so jealous of your bike path route. None of our local bike paths run anywhere near the route between my house and my job. I’d ride to work A LOT more, if I didn’t have to take such busy roads.
There was sun this morning? I almost stopped for a picture too, but figured it would be easier to just fire up an image editor and fill the frame with #666666…
It was bright and shiny at the front end of my commute, but by the time it concluded it was fogged in. Darned Tule fog… :-)
I’m willing to bet those 25 feet of altitude you’ve got on me probably helped a bit, too…
Fortunately, I love riding in fog — the denser, the better. The atmosphere is so serene and the isolation so palpable it almost turns my normally wonderful ride into a zen meditation. It’s almost a shame to break it up by going in to the office.
Wow, fantastic shot. That’s great.
This week I am on night shift and ride to work at 11pm along a country road away from the city lights.
No wind and a bright moon with the stars shining.
Hard to capture on a camera but perfect nonetheless.
Just to top it off I rode my recumbent for a change.

Sure. I’ll work on it this weekend.
Not knowing which direction you were facing, this beautiful shot could have worked as well for the #2 reason: sunset.
At least here in California, the telltale sign that it’s morning is the tule fog just below the horizon in the photo; you wouldn’t normally see that on a clear day at sunset.
