In just a couple of days, the Sun will cross over the equator from north to south. This autumnal equinox will take place in the wee hours of Thursday, September 23. On this first day of fall, the night will begin to be longer than the day.

If you've been thinking about commuting by bicycle, fall is the perfect time to try this. One of the biggest hindrances to bicycle commuting is stinky sweat, but at this time of year the air is cool during the morning commute. Bicycle commuting is literally "no sweat."

Bill Milbratz lists these incentives to autumn bicycle commuting on the Icebike discussion list. (Reprinted here with his kind permission.)As the days get shorter, please be sure to get lights for night riding.
