January Biking in Denver

The weather in Denver is so fickle! 20°C on weekend, -10°C the next. Makes for interesting wardrobe choices. Either way though, the Denver bike paths are fricking awesome!

    Good photos! I appreciate your use of Celsius – I'm hanging around engineers too much, I'm slowly being sucked into horrible units like Fahrenheit and kips and mgds. My water resources prof did win my allegiance, though, by suggesting that Obama should sign a proclamation outlawing english and engineering units.

    The bike paths are awesome! I can't believe how little snow there is there!

    Yeah, it's super dry here. It snows, but it never sticks around. Even if it doesn't warm up, the snow will sublimate away, but it usually warms up. Supposed to be 13°C Saturday.

    Thankfully I don't even know what those units you're abbreviating are! I wish I could get my weather forecast in °K!

    I lived in Denver from age 3 to 6, and I guess I don't remember a lot of snow. Boulder had plenty the winter I was there.

    How is the water situation in Denver and Boulder as it impacts future livability (re: climate change)?

    We are at -6C, which is the warmest it will be all week :) Let's see, that's…dang, I don't have 273 fingers! I never was good at adding either – I was meant to be a scientist and not an engineer (I do math better with letters than numbers).

    How long was your ride – I see you gained some elevation – or was that a couple of different trips?

    Oh yeah, that was three separate days of biking across about a week of time. It’s about 30km from Michelle’s folk’s place to downtown via the bike path (and 20km via the most direct route, but that’s not nearly as pleasant). I think that like most places in the west, there’s going to be plenty of water here for people to live (i.e. drink, bathe, wash) in most any climate scenario, but agriculture and landscaping will have to change.
