Our local weather dude claims that March 1st is Meteorlogical (SP?) Spring. He says Dec., Jan., and Feb. are the three coldest hence the winter months....and Mar., Apr. & May are the in-between months hence it's Spring.
Well since I had to go to work last night anyway I opted to try taking the Trek. Son-of-a-***, the roads have popped up out of their icy tombs and the sun was shining. Now March is generally when we get our most notable storms but what the hey, I'm going to keep on riding, at least for now.
I even marked the occasion with a couple of pics. WARNING: These are photos taken at my workplace and are somewhat depressing. The old Company ain't what it used to be but who cares about that stuff when one's riding their bike?
Here's the Beast tethered to the bike rack, er...what's left of the bike rack. I don't mind trudging through the snow but that rack!?!?
Another view from in the snow. I'm not too thrilled about that smoking area right at the bike rack either. I've lodged a few complaints but I get the impression that I'm just being ignored. Kinda like "Oh, here comes that wierdo with the bike again."
So this is my first Spring ride and I logged a whopping 13.4 miles round trip.
