At 14°F, it was definitely a cold ride to work this morning. It took about a mile and a half before my face when numb. Then I stopped to snap some pictures, which made my fingers go numb. However, the sun was out and it is a beautiful morning in Denver.

Why am I doing this? To raise money for a CSS Design contest.

Tuesday Morning Update: Last night's ride home was pretty warm - 35°F. This morning's ride was fairly nice too (31°F). Here's proof from last night.

What's the total distance to your office? I live 3.5 miles from work and have been thinking of biking to work after winter.

It's pretty short - I think it's around 6 miles. It takes me 20 minutes when listening to music, 30 minutes when listening to podcasts. ;-)

I'm sure you know this from living in Denver but watch out for frostbite on your face while riding. According to the NOAA wind chill chart: 14oF with a 6mph wind sets the wind chill at 5oF. At 5oF with a 5mph wind frostbit e can start in 20mins.

It is 60F degrees in Tucson AZ. We pay for it in the summer when it gets really hot. I could not ride my bike to work since my office is 40 feet from my front door. I guess I could, but.... Don't get me wrong, I need the exercise.

Not to brag, but I've been riding 6-10 miles to work at -25 degrees Celsius at the coldest, which works out to -45 degrees Fahrenheit I believe.

I strongly recommend warm boots, double gloves and most importantly several layers over your head, starting with a hood / hat that only shows your eyes and maybe nose and mouth.

And after taking the pictures, it's always a good idea to warm up your fingers by sticking them to your neck for a while :)
