Perfect this morning. Still in my Summer gear - mesh and compression gear. Love the breeze.

Looks like the rain has gone... and the heat too. Good to be back on 2wheels. Need to leave earlier though. Don't remember traffic being this thick at 6:25am.

It's felt great the last couple of mornings. Now I just need to figure out why my bike isn't happy...

almost considered going home to get the bike after daycare, but remembered it's still in track form....had to settle for windows down and music up instead. Great weather this morning....made walking into the office tough.

Wonderful morning! Chilly at first though...

...which is such a contrast! Yesterday afternoon, my bike overheated 1 mile form my house in traffic. Radiator resi bubbled over.

Time to start busting out the winter liners...

I can't get to work early since I get a kiddo on the bus at 8:20 so when I got to work today all the fair weather riders had their bright, shiny cruisers in all the available spots. I had to go park upstairs with the cars.

This is definitely the most comfortable time of the year to be riding. Loving it.

Me too. I'm more comfortable in the cold than in the heat though. Not the most convenient thing getting bundled up for the ride in, but it's usually really nice in the afternoons through most of the winter.

Thats what i was thinking. I dont mind the cold (with the right gear) its just a pain in the putting that gear on. BIG overpants, BIG gloves etc etc

Absolutely. You can always throw gear at cold weather, but there ain't a whole lot you can do for hot&humid.

Mesh/textile combo gear, sweat, and an extra bottle or two of water in the backpack tends to do the trick for me.
