After a couple days of clouds, it was great to see the sun again this morning. Just a couple clouds for the color to play with… but lots of color splashing across the horizon!

Meanwhile, a smidge to the left… a bit to the north….

Okay, so not so much a “sunrise” bike ride… as a beautifully cloudy morning along the lake. Either way, always the best way to start my day… now bring on the PUMPKIN PIE!!!

Another chilly morning… about twenty degrees colder than yesterday. So a few more layers and I was ready to pedal on. Lots of clouds flying low on the horizon. Too many blocking the actual sunrise.

With morning temps in the low 40′s, it felt oddly warm as the clouds blew through the City. It was an interesting race of clouds versus sun… wondering how it was going to play out as the sunrise tried its best to break through. And boy, did it!!!

Another chilly morning with strong headwinds for the first half of my ride. Lots of clouds blowing through without much chance of an actual sunrise. You can almost see how cold it is in the photos!

Chilly start to a beautiful clear morning.
Great start to another week with another sunrise bike ride.

Sure, I’ve been incredibly BUSY!!!
But never too busy to squeeze in another beautiful morning sunrise ride.
Sure it was a bit chilly, and even more windy, but that sliver of sun was pretty sweet
against the dark clouded sky.

After a long day of soda-firing yesterday, it felt great to be out on my bike for a crisp & chilly sunrise ride this morning. More layers, wool socks & gloves and you’re ready to go!

As the sunrise continues to get later & later in the morning, my ride just seems to be getting darker & darker. More time riding in the darkness with some color finally showing towards the end of my ride. Today it was sun versus clouds blowing in. Guess who won.
