With three large projects going simultaneously in addition to the day job, I’ve been a bit oversubscribed lately, so I’ve been getting a lot of my bike time indoors on a trainer. It allows me to multi-task, getting some reading done while I exercise. And I do enjoy it. But it’s not riding. Riding is fun.
I’ve got a couple of days off work, and today I was watching the weather (big storm coming in) and just assuming it’d be indoor bike time for me. But when my friends at the National Weather Service issued their latest short term forecast just before noon, suggesting the snow wouldn’t hit until 3 or 4, I saw the opening, threw on the winter gear and slipped out into the cold grey of an impending snowstorm.
If you look closely at the picture, you can see my reflection in the car bumper, to the right of my ACA sticker. That’s my neon green winter wind vest. It was a bit on the cold side (37F, 3C), a little windy, and fun.
