Coming soon I'll go into greater detail on my commute and commuting in Houston but for now a short trip report. Between the short days, ice storms, and crazy work schedule I haven't commuted via bike once this year. So it felt great to get up a little early this morning and get on the road. It was about 45F and foggy. Around the Barker Cypress Reservoir was extremely foggy and seven miles into my seventeen mile ride my toes started to get numb, but other than that it was perfect. I saw three other cyclists and a couple joggers going through George Bush Park, which is light traffic for this heavily used trail. Perhaps it's still a little early and cold for the masses to start taking advantage of the park. One of my favorite parts of riding through the park early in the morning, or just before dusk, this time of year is seeing deer roaming the park.
