What Would You Do?


What would you do to avoid standing in line at the post office?

Go early?
Late?

How about ride for 2 hours in drizzle @ 35*F (1.6*C)?
That was my choice...


...and it was awesome!!!

I didn't even have to dress in anything more than typical commuter gear:

  • polypro t-shirt
  •  leg warmers
  • bibshorts
  •  LS jersey
  • mid weight cycling jacket
  • cotton cycling cap
  • Shimano MW 81 Winter Boots
  • Pearl Izumi Gavia Gloves
The only thing I'd change is the gloves; the Gavia's just don't live up to their name.  Hampsten definitely wouldn't approve.  My hand was a little shaky writing down the address on my package when I got to the Post office . The PI Pro Soft Shell definitely would have been a better choice.

Oh, well, sure beats waiting in line!

I highly recommend the Collinsville PO too.
