Who rode to work today?

I rode to work today! I got tired of mother nature cramping my style, so I just bit the bullet. 41 degrees now; but 68 DEGREES LATER! No pain, no gain right? Who else rode today?

My wife refuses to let me ride in the rain...and I dont much like it either, so thats all good... And, because the cost of parking in San Francisco shot up 300% over last year (from $1.50/day to $6/day overnight!) , my commuting is carefully planned. It either costs me $64/week in BART tickets, or $100/month for parking in the garage. This month began with torrential rains, so I bought BART tickets...and then the rain stopped and it shot up to 75+ for a weekend - but now its back down to cold as hell (37-42* in mornings), and calling for possible showers the rest of this week.

So I didnt ride, and dont plan to begin commuting on it until next month, when I dump BART and buy the monthly parking pass.

Best part is, I've figured out how to beat the FASTRAK lane on the bridge - so that saves me money every time I cross it ($1.50/day for carpoolers/motorcycles) If anyone wants to know how, send me a PM - Im not about to put the secret on the Net so the MTA can read about it and fix the problem...

I am on the road at 530am, and its still mostly dark then. I think in my 27 mile rural, two-lane journey; I see about 5-10 cars/trucks. I cannot imagine LA traffic, and do not blame you a bit!

Yeah, I rode today. Even at the late time I go in it was still only 58 degrees. Glad it's only 18 miles for me.

Does Spring ever come in Illinois?

I ride to work 365 a year unless its pouring in the morning.
If theres a chance of rain i take my rain suit and just say F it.
I just cant stand being wet at work all da long.
The hardest part is trying to decide which one to ride!
Did i mention i live on the gulf in florida,and my mustang gt hates me!
LET THE HATIN BEGIN!
