A while back a submitted a “commuter profile” to bikecommuters.com, a terrific web site and blog I read regularly. I noticed today that my profile just got posted! Thanks Jack! You can see my profile here.
Seems like this winter has a pattern of snowfalls during the day. Makes it tricky to judge if the snowfall will be too deep for me to ride home. I’m not exactly sure what my limit is, in part because the difficulty varies with the consistency of the snow, but more than an inch gets worrisome.
Here’s my Leitra tucked in to the garage after this evening’s ride home from work.
I’ve started preparing the Leitra for this coming winter. One thing I’ve wanted to do for a while was replace the low-powered taillight. The original light had 2 LEDs and wasn’t as bring as I would like. After a bit of searching around, I found a 5 LED light that uses higher brightness LEDs and offers several blinking patterns. Most importantly, it came with a mounting bracket that fit in the narrow space in the tail box lid. Here’s what it looks like from inside and outside.
This was the coldest ride of the season this morning at 6F. It is cold earlier than usual this winter. I would normally expect a ride like this sometime in early to mid January.
