    Fun ride by conversation today

    On my ride today, headed slightly uphill (and hence going slower than usual), I saw someone kicking ice chunks across the road from a driveway. After threading my way through the chunks that didn't make it all the way across I waved and the woman said,

    Ah, my favorite harbinger of spring, the bicycle.

    I've been out here.

    All winter?

    Pretty much.

    OK, you can be my favorite harbinger of winter.

    I don't wanna be THAAAT!

    which produced a big belly laugh, that followed me as I rode past!

    It's always good to know that some folks are friendly to bicyclists, even though she was throwing ice onto the road.

    Last March I stopped into a store north of Fort Bragg, CA on the coast to get some quick calories. As I was standing in line a woman exclaimed, "Spring is here. I've seen my first cyclist." I ride year-round, but I rarely get more than 100 miles from home during the winter.
