Autumn wonderment

Every year, it surprises me.

It's almost as though after Labor Day the bikes get put away along with the fashionable summer attire. The bike storage room goes half-empty or more, even though this is absolutely and consistently the nicest time of the whole year to be cycling in the Boise area. (Lots of sunshine, lows in the 50s, highs in the 70s.)

More room on the infrastructure for those of us who know better, I guess.

I've noticed the same thing ... truly odd, isn't it? In my view, the weather is finally getting tolerable again and people are packing it in for the "season." Madness!

Maybe it's the slight chill in the air in the mornings? This week I noticed that my neighbor has again started leaving their car running in the driveway to warm up, which they don't do in the summer.

I agree that this is a great time of year. Not so cool that a jacket is required while riding to work, but not so hot to be uncomfortable while riding home.
