New Rule: in the quest to cycle at least twice a week for a year, from here on out a commute on foot hereby counts as a bicycle ride.
It was April when I decided to drive less and bicycle more. What was I was thinking? Winter wouldn't come again?

It seems sensible to give myself slack. If it's dark, wet, cold, if there are leaves piled dangerously in the bike path, if my inner warning system is hollering don't do it, I won't. The point is, after all, to Get Out Of the Car. My feet work fine. We have plenty of shoes.
Yeah, walking is slow, a little lonely ...
...and presents challenges ...
|Through or around? Through or around?|
but there's something to be said for making it through the season in one piece. Vive la pedestrians.

What adjustments do you make for winter commutes? Or are you lucky enough to live in a sunny place where weather isn't an issue?
