    Boy, it must be nice to live in an area where spring arrives so early and winters are mild.
    Here in central Ontario Canada still a few piles of snow, dreary grey lawns covered in matted leaves and dirt. Today it is actually going to 50F and sunny! Get out my 3 store bought and two homebuilt recumbents. Got to ride them all today while the going’s good.
    Thanks for excellent pictures and articles.

    I am so jealous, Alan. I had a pleasant commute this morning, but it’s now 30 degrees with snow on the way.

  • Alan says:

    Tom,

    Just think about me in July when you’re having beautiful weather and we’re experiencing 105F… :-)

    Spring snow for us in Montana! Of course that is likely because I took the studded tires off over the weekend and now the roads are too slick to ride and covered in several inches of snow!

  • David says:

    Here in Seattle we had full sun and 50 degrees, rain, sleet, and snow, all in an 8 hour period yesterday. It definitely made for an “interesting” commute!

    Alan-
    I think this is the 10th time (at least) you’ve had to remind all us miserable non-Californians that while we suffer through our winters, you suffer through your summers.
    I think you’ll need a few posts this summer of sweaty, hot, unhappy commuters – beautifully photographed, of course – to prove your point! ;)

    Is that a Po Campo bag on your rack? Are you some kind of metrosexual ;)

    JK, it’s interesting.

    “Is that a Po Campo bag on your rack? Are you some kind of metrosexual ;)”

    LOL. Naw, it’s just a cheapie lunch box my wife bought at Target because my other one stank… :-)

  • Jim says:

    No matter how I say this it’s going to come out wrong now, but here it goes: You have a lot of interesting things on your rear end. Is that a backpack-style pannier too?

  • Alan says:

    @Jim

    That’s an Arkel Bug, convertible backpack/pannier. It’s been my goto commuting bag for a few years now.
