Sun Gets In Your Eyes

The worst part of my current commute is the fact that my long ride down Mt. Vernon Highway is almost directly into the setting sun. Of course it's not my eyes I'm worried about, it's all the people driving behind me. So what do I do? Of course high visibility gear is normal, but I also run my rear blinkie with the hopes that it will attract a little extra attention. Most importantly I check my mirror often, this $5 device has saved my life at least once. I would call that a bargain.

Snow Globe

I rode home in the snow on Wednesday and guess what, it was a blast. I can't think of the last time I had so much fun on my commute.

2 Months and No Posts; What's Going On

In a word nothing. More accurately I should say nothing noteworthy. I still riding around Atlanta, still commuting by bike, and still being a grouch. The ride to my new job isn't too bad, there's a limited number of ways to get from here to there and everyone of them is busy morning and night.

I meant to post last week when we had that cold snap but work and life hot in the way. More regular postings to follow.
