Today was the first day for the thick winter gloves. I also put the shoe covers over my shoes. Compared to previous years, I don't think it's been that cold and I'm grateful.
It was a dull ride today. The most exciting part was trying to work through the moral dilemma of letting the guy riding in front of me know that he left shoelace was untied. I declined to do so, thinking it not worth my troubling him. I hope he managed to stave off lace-induced disaster.
Two bicyclists riding through the security bollards in the opposite direction as I did this morning. It's been, what, maybe two weeks now since the tape was last there. I think that we won, even if it's purely coincidental. In any case, I think that we can take credit for it.
Orange Public bikes are the hotness. Saw two today. I wish someone in town actually stocked them because I just don't like the idea of buying a bike over the internet without riding it first.
Big thanks to DCDPW for de-leaving the cycletrack. Noted improvement duly noted:

Just laggardly for much of my trip. Some days are slower than others. Not much to do about that. I mean, other than try to suffer your way through it, which is no fun at all. Better to just take it easy and just get there when you get there. I generally find the length of my commute to be pretty ok- it's long enough to feel like I'm actually getting a proper bike ride, but not so long that I get bored- but some days I wish I had a nice and easy, flat two-miler. In fact, I sort of wish that everyone had a nice and easy, flat two-miler. It's the impossible dream.
