One of the reasons I'm jazzed about my new gig is it's within (bike) riding distance from our house. Usually I start riding to work when it gets warm, which is usually in March or April. However, I used to ride to downtown to the Tivoli Theater when I worked there in college. Back then, I'd ride no matter what, and I worked there in the winter. A buddy of mine works downtown and he's been riding to work all winter - even when it was 0°F out. To make a long story short, I got motivated by him this weekend and decided to start riding my bike to work. Today it was 29°F and the ride was beautiful. Riding in the cold is a lot like skiing - you just have to be dressed for it. It only took 30 minutes, which is 5 minutes slower than the Light Rail and the same duration as the bus.
