short shorts and a t-shirt

Remember what it's like to bike without hats, gloves, extra socks, etc? I was riding around late last night actually thinking to myself that I wouldn't mind it if just stayed in the mid-30's (F) all the time. The nice thing about the cooler temperatures is I don't have to worry about a constantly sweaty back from my backpack, I'm not in constant need of hydration like when it's warmer out, I can ride across lakes instead of around them, and the mid-30's is the perfect temperature where I don't have to wear many clothes while cycling. Well, there's also the added feature of fewer recumbents, but let's leave that for someone else's blog.

Don't get me wrong, I welcome the warmer weather, it's just that I'll be missing these riding conditions as soon as they've past behind us.

First winter of everyday biking to work and want some warm. Don't need short shorts temps because of my bird legs (cluck-cluck). But want some 50's or so.

I say I won't miss the layering game each year but come summer I'm dreaming of frosy mornings.

Seasons are nice, I'd hate to live somwhere in the south.
