Cold Weather Disguises

The other day I was biking home and a cyclist waved at me.

Now, biking in Boston sometimes has the feeling of a biking in a small town. I’m always running into friends on the street. But in cold weather there are some social challenges.

And I may not even recognize my best friends unless they are willing to unbundle a bit. Not always pleasant this time of year.

So it got me wondering if there’s a better way.

Maybe not. I may not recognize my friends until spring, my apologies.

I posted a picture of what I wear in winter on my blog. Doesn’t help, the people that ride around here don’t read my blog any more since they have long since gotten the useful information from it.

I wave at all cyclIsts whether I know them or not. On our narrow, winding, one-lane roads here in Humboldt I wave at motorists too. They almost always seem to give me a little more room, slow down a bit, smile, and wave back. Try it; you just might be surprised at how much more pleasant your commute can be.

Thanks for a moment of humor to start the day. Semaphore definitely not the way to go.

Very fun! I even have trouble recognizing people in warm weather bicycle gear (helmet and sunglasses).
