Anybody rode to work today?

So I've been riding to work this week cuz of the light traffic. Yesterday was cold on the way in and got just a lil better on the way home. I was freezing my off in the morning, so today I had on long thermal, winter glove, and a wind breaker underneath my leather jacket. It was colder riding in and more windy but I was prepared.

Then, I just ran a quick errand on my bike before going home and it is so hot out there. I was sweating underneath the layer. Guess the long thermal can be taken off but I have to wear those winter gloves on the way home. Such a weather in Houston.

Be safe out there.

I rode today. I always bring a backpack with my dress shoes and dress shirt, so I just leave some layers in the backpack on the way home.

Rode yesterday, and not bad with enough gear. Indeed crazy weather, brought the light gloves to wear on ride home. Today I got halfway geared up but then saw there was frost on the roof, which is my rule of thumb "don't do it". Some of the freeway overpasses I go over could have frost if the roof does

I think yesterday was colder during the day, but this morning seemed colder in the morning but it warmed up really well. I layer up nicely so staying warm is not a problem for the most part, but I have two sets of gloves and neither are winter gloves... so my hands are like numb by the time I get to where I'm going. I don't want to break down and buy winter gloves for the week out of the year that it actually gets cold.

And carry a nice backpack, that way when it warms up in the afternoon you can bag up a layer or two and ride comfortably home. Or nekkid. no clothes ftw.

Today did not feel bad at all on the ride to work. I rode the day after it snowed, REALLY cold that day.

Man wear that wind breaker on top of your jacket and you'll be a lot warmer!

sorry I want to say I ride everyday but I'm not that cool. if it is like 100% chance of rain or like t-storms, tornados, anything like that, sorry but I'm out. just not that hardcore.
