I am not the hardiest, most gung-ho bicyclist. You could call me a fair weather rider. I mostly skip the snow, ice, rain and really cold days. But spring is coming and I have already seized the opportunity to leave the car at home and pedal the 10 miles to work and back. First time was last week, when it hit the 60’s in the afternoon.
Today, I set out early, leaving enough time to stop and cast a vote before continuing the ride to work.
It wasn’t a perfect day for riding. Still a little chilly and breezy. I needed gloves and a hat. But it’s a lot warmer than winter. And we’re getting more daylight every day. That makes a difference to me. So, it’s not exactly fair weather yet, but it’s fair enough.
