    First commute home from my new job. Glad that the sun is setting after five so that I could do the first bit, which I tried once in December, while it was light out. I was on 4MRT and W&OD by the time it was getting dark enough to need some light.

    The parts of the commute through Ballston for my trip to the gym were not as pleasant as all the people who think the bike lane is for parking were out. Also those who do not look in the bike lane before making a right turn. Sure as I yelled at him he noticed, but then he decided to just stop and luckily I did too or would have ended up in his hatchback. So, stopping short in the bike lane was supposed to be helpful to whom, exactly?

    Depends on which way you are going.

    You're taunting the westward-bound and 20 mph is all you got? You should have waited until Feb or March when there will likely be some real winds.

    Seriously. A 20mph headwind is normal.

    I had a meeting out there last night during the evening commute, and I confess I didn't appreciate how many were in the W&OD set. It was CRAZY. And there were some great light set-ups.

    Posting from the middle of the river after I was blown off the 14th Street Bridge. My pannier is a nice flotation device and my phone is surprisingly water-proof.

    These miles floating count for Freezing Saddles, right?

    Crossing the Roosevelt Bridge was touch-and-go. I mean, I think my tires actually lifted off the pavement.
