Last week I had my bike in the basement to wipe off the salt crust and install much needed fenders. Despite year round commuting, I'll be welcoming Spring with open arms. Riding on the ice and snow is an exciting challenge. My bicycle is as reliable as I need it to be. Unlike a car, I can pick it up rather and carry it over snow banks. The extra resistance of knobby, studded tires helps keep off the winter weight while the sunshine (what little there is) keeps my spirits up. With all the things I enjoy about winter riding, I can't wait for my favorite off road shortcuts to open back up. I yearn for the days when it is warm enough that I don't have to plan and layer clothing for the trip. Can I get an amen?
