Commuting weather

It's been really good commuting weather the last few day. Cool mornings requiring a light jacket and evening temps in the mid to upper 70's.

There were quite a few bikes out this morning and none of the riders had helmets or any type of bike clothing. They ride on the sidwalks, on the wrong side of street and weaving in and out of traffic to avoid having to wait their turn to cross or turn or whatever. The problem is that they are not highly skilled or experienced riders. They are all around 35-40 and it seems like they are riding like they did when they were 14.

The camera has been stuck in the handlebar bag. Bike hypnosis has been setting in lately and lots of good shots have been missed. Thats the down side of a routine hour long bike commute. The upside is the extra hour of sleep. And the view.

Finally this thanks to Jamie in Columbus

  1. Wow, that's fantastic. It's been hot as hell here, and it's getting old. The heat is about to break, but we're headed to the south. I don't care, though, I can't wait to get away for a while.

    I see cyclists like that all the time, and when we return, IU students will be everywhere, and they are just awful cyclists, in general -- completely unpredictable and distracted by iPods.
