Tough Commuting Weather

Yesterday, it was 39 degrees for the morning ride to school. By the time I rode home, the temperature was in the lower 70s, and my messenger bag was stuffed full of the winter cycling clothes I was wearing for the morning ride. It was easier last week, when it was consistently chilly all day. Same weather today as yesterday, but I'm driving in.


  1. That's tough. This time of year, if I misjudge the weather/temp. when I ride in in the morning, I take the bus home in the afternoon. It's easy for me because I have a folding bike. It means that I can ride in, bus home, and then do it all again the next day. When does it get reliably warm again?

  2. Not until next April or May. I don't mind consistently cool or even consistently cold so much as the large spread in daily his and lows.
