Friday Morning Commute: Crystal Clear

Friday Morning Commute

It seems we’re finally past our interminable fog for at least a little while. Today’s commute was crisp, cold, and crystal clear. Absolutely gorgeous. I hope you had a good one too!

    Funny you should say that; when I was biking in this morning, I thought about stopping to take a picture of the dense fog, but figured it’d be easier (and more accurate) just to open up a graphics program and do a fill with #C0C0C0 instead.

    Sounds like tule fog strikes again… :-)

    sadly I’ve been grounded by black ice most of the week. Studded tyres seem like a huge investment for something that’s only a problem a few days of the year … but then a week of no bike feels like purgatory…

    We’ve had a lot of snow here and the trail I take is still covered. I haven’t been able to commute but, will get some rides in this weekend.
    This is all setting me up for a solid weekly commute once weather is on my side. Lots of miles and “reasons” for parts upgrades. My wife will love it!
    First order will be bar end shifters I think…

    OK, now I’m starting to feel grumpy; 9 degrees and very icy here this morning, it would indeed have been a “crisp, cold” commute :) Come on spring!

    beautiful crisp morning commute here in VA – a liitle over 32F but beautiful purple sunrise just after 7am.

  • Doug says:

    My commute this morning was beyond crisp, it was -21F here in northeastern Minnesota. I took the time to stop and take some pictures of the sunrise over frigid Lake Superior. I was dressed plenty warm and enjoyed my sunrise commute as well.

  • Alan says:


    -21F! I can’t even imagine what that’s like…

    its been good here (new hampshire, seacoast). a little more snow than i want, but with snow seems to be better temperatures.

    a tangent question, if anybody knows of good eco-friendly and fair trade made flip top wool gloves that can handle light to cold temperatures, i woudl be interested. i bought the smartwool fliptop merino wool gloves this season, but already falling apart and jsut slightly not warm enough for me. i might go back to outdoor research glvoes (meteor i think) next year, but i would rather buy from a company that focuses on eco friendly and fair trade
