My least favorite month to ride is January, and I’m thankful that the month is almost over. Riding in these conditions can be depressing, but yesterday I seemed to be ok with it. It was cold and windy, but the sun was out. The wind had sculpted the landscape into a wintery art show, so it was nice to just cruise around and enjoy the scenery.
We have some warmer temperatures headed our way next week. The roads should melt off quickly, and I think the road biking will be nice.
Last night the wind was howling, and it was snowing out. Some coworkers were shocked and concerned that I’d be riding home in the weather. I watched people squeeze their coats, and tuck their heads down while headed to their cars. I was dressed properly for the weather, so I was quite comfortable. I was probably warmer than many of the people sitting in their cars. If they only knew how much fun I was having!
There were lots of reports of accidents, and everyone seemed to be very concerned about driving home. I was so glad to be in town, and relieved that I didn’t have to get into a car and be in the mess.
