The backhoes and what have you were back today.
The kirby overpass grand opening has been delayed "due to weather." Snork. December 6 is not to be... what a surprise - there might be days where it isn't above 40 and dry in NOvember and December! It's not as if we had an inclement summer.
Saw 12 or 13 bicycles on the way in today (unlike yesterday where I saw none), including a 7500FX with fenders *and* aerobars and a soul in shorts.
I prob'ly woulnd't have been *cold* in shorts... but my skin dessicates to ash in a heartbeat. I *like* layers. The Wickers are great - like unto perhaps three layers in one! It was tights, wickers, and the flimsiest holy sweats (on the grounds that I dind't want my outmost layer to be "underwear") on the bottom, wickers and sweats and one jacket on top and the jacket wasn't fastened.
Now I gotta go change that stuff into something less homeless-looking 'cause I"m at work :)
Also, the reason I found your blog is I am trying to find a mountain bike for day. Campus rec only has basic ones - any ideas where I might be able to get one?
Not a mountain bike, the 7500FX ends up being a pretty good tourer. It's a hybrid - but with fast wheels and a light, aluminum frame. I have one and did the RAIN ride on it (with skinnier tyres than stock - I wasn't close enough to that guy to check his tires).
