For many years, I was a regular bike commuter. I worked about 5 miles from my house, and the bike route was largely along the levees of the Sacramento River. Sacramento affords year-round bike commuting weather, but it does have it moments. Like the time I rode into the office when it was 22 degrees F, or when it started raining right when I was planning on riding home.

It occurred to me that a simple twitter bot, that posted twice a day, could give me the temperature on the ride in, and the temperature on the way home. Heck I’m checking twitter a couple times a day, may as well get some useful info out of it…

So I created “BikeWxX”. X stands for the cities, currently San Francisco, Sacramento, Silicon Valley, and Portland. I find it to be super convenient, hope you find it useful.

Here’s the code. Grab it and make a tool for the bike commuters in your community.

  1. Thank you for doing this. Not only does it give info for current bike commuters, but also to those who might be considering such.
