Lately, I still hear people at work whi, er, complain, about how hot their vehicles are when they get off work and generally it seems that talking about blistering heat is almost a mandatory point of pride in North Texas. Really, though, it isn’t usually all that bad. Still, it seems that the changing of the seasons gets noticed more from the saddle of a bike. Each week now, I find myself turning my lights off a little later into the commute. Each week, the water bottle water takes longer to get hot. Each week, northerly winds are more likely and southerly winds less. The crossing guards and school buses are back at work. Before you know it, we’ll lose the afternoon sun when daylight savings time goes away early again this year.
It’s time to start looking for those clear ski goggles I’ve misplaced, after all, I'd hate to be known as "just a fair weather cyclist."
Subject Matter Mostly it's about local transportation cycling, as it exists in the here and now. It's got a smattering of other gratuitous toy recreation thrown in to keep y'all a little off balance. For those that don't know me, toy recreation means English & Italian cars, aircraft - and downhill skiing.
