I put slicks back on my bike tonight. I'm sure that they will come back off before spring arrives for good, but the roads have been clear and dry for many days now. Can't wait for tomorrow to try them out again!
Thanks to everyone who posted pictures last week. Tibike and Velogirl, remember that you promised some pics this week! I thought we could try this little game: write a haiku about your commute. The baisc rules for haiku are that it is a non-rhyming poem three lines long. It should have 5 syllables in the first line, 7 in the second, and 5 in the last. A reference to a season is a plus. Obviously, if you break some or all of the above rules, nobady is going to care.
Here is mine for today:
The merciless wind
Blows the tears back from my eyes
Squinting, I still ride.
I was thinking about those cold winter mornings when the wind is blasting away and your eyes are watering from the cold. I get icicles on my sunglasses sometimes from that. I can feel their tracks as they blow back on my cheekbones.
