July 27 bike forecast: good, except for the wind

(Oops! No bike forecast yesterday. Sorry. Life is busy.)

Thursday: looks all right… except for that PM wind. Oy.

Overall: high 79, low 69, 20% chance of rain, 80% humidity

AM: high 70s, mostly cloudy, 15% chance of rain

PM: high 70s, partly cloudy, windy as heck from the north-northeast


How windy is it?

Okay, maybe not quite that windy. But 16mph is a lot, and if you’re commuting to the north in the evening, I’m sorry for your headwinds.

Our advice: consider avoiding the Lake Front Trail in the PM. Surface streets should be calmer, climatologically speaking.


DIVVY REPORT: RIP 29th and State. It’s official: station removed from the system. Other up-to-the-minute updates here.

This is Ocean Parkway, Brooklyn, NY. The oldest bike path in the country, built in 1894. (More on this later, maybe.)
