Well, I guess we knew this would come sooner or later. Winter that is. I say with much disdain. I know it’s good for the mountains, ski industry, farmers, and kids, but I’m none of those. What little bit of excitement I may get out of playing in the snow has pretty well passed by February. But really, I guess I should be thankful for just how mild things have been up until now. I’ve lucked out at work and got the house we’re building closed in so interior work can begin, and I’ve got a fair amount of riding it. In fact a couple of us even got out last weekend despite temps in the teens and new snow on the ground. It was definitely not the mileage we were hoping for, but all in all it was still a decent ride. The cold snow makes a very satisfying squeak under your tires and provides reasonably good traction. And it was way better that slaving away on a trainer!
