The Winter Cometh

Due to my somewhat unkempt beard, many people mistake me for a hipster or, less occasionally, the uni-bomber. Therefore it surprises people when I tell them that will not bike for the winter. In fact, I have COTA bus passes ordered for December, January, and February.

Much to my chagrin, the weather has taken a turn for the worse. The 5-day forecast has rain and snow in it and that means that I am officially done with biking for 2011. While this would mean nothing to me when I had a 2 miles commute, the 6 mile commute makes me too pissy to deal with rain and gloom everyday.

Weather hates bikers. Sometimes.
But have no fear, my fiercely loyal readers. I am a firm believer in different modes of transportation and I will primarily be discussing COTA along with inclement weather biking during my bike hibernation. I will also spend time learning what a bike consists of besides metal.

So in the near future, look for me in the gym to replace my hour bicycle commute.
