Come on Spring!
This picture is for my Father who doesn't see my Facebook posts. This is me commuting to work on Friday. I think the picture is funny mainly because of the huge snowbank right behind me. I also put studded tires on my bike Thursday night, so I did not slip at all Friday, even when riding on big ice patches. You know those melted-and-refrozen patches of ice?
By Today when I rode to the bike shop and back, I think I hardly would have needed those studded tires. And with the warmer weather, biking felt amazing! And evidently I am not the only one who thinks so. Yesterday a whole flock of bike racers flew across my path on their training ride. (St. Paul Bike Racing Club) And today I saw at least a dozen individuals out riding their bikes! Is it Spring or is it Spring Fever? Come on Spring! Ready or not, here we come!
