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? :dontknow:

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...

it has been a long time . but today i am going to a bike night after work with a friend. i do not like riding in LA traffic.
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 rode to work last Friday and also went for a little ride on Saturday as well. Before that, I hadn't ridden it in a while so it sure felt good to get back on it.

Sure looking forward to some good riding this summer though and taking some trips with it.

Me too. It still isn't very warm even when I go in. I had to though since they're calling for rain and cold the next few days.

To answer your other question, yes the tan buildings 1/2 mile south of 136 on CR1000 are us.
