My winter sunrise bicycle commute

Posted Jan 13 2011 7:04pm
Gorgeous sunrise over Duluth and Lake Superior this morning. It didn't last long. Twenty minutes later it started snowing. Light snow continued all day. So light, it only mounted to 1-2 inches. We seem to be getting all our snow one or two inches at a time. It did this on Tuesday, and another small storm is supposed to come through tomorrow. Temps were in the teens all day.
The Surly after sitting outside all day. Even though I haven't gotten the belt drive to work, I'm loving this new bike. It's a great winter commuter, even without the belt, same as my last Cross Check .


This is what two inches of salted and sanded snow looks like. It's nasty, component eating slop.


I heard this guy coming up fast behind me. I baled to the other side of the road....

....for a photo-op.


Some more of what my commute looks like. Notice the lack of cars. That's what allows me to keep such a perfect streak going of riding every single day. Low traffic routes.

Massive, and I mean MASSIVE, amounts of salt will keep a road clear of freshly fallen snow at 19F (-7C).

Back down to my neighborhood in West Duluth. This road is more heavily traveled. Somehow I managed to ride it when a large gap between cars was occurring. Something that never happens this time of day.

Another interesting day of bicycle commuting in Minnesota.
