    Classic: skids that make Teadogg look like a little baby, Mexican dudes asking if I need a ride home, same looking baffled and amused when I decline the offer and can't wipe the ****-eating grin off my face.

    Dud: Jeans, overheating.

    (here's an idea: let's keep all Chicago wintry ride talk/planning here, eh? Am I the only one that's into keeping things tidy like that?)

    Also: I'm heading out for some more in a bit -- bright green Marmot jacket, ski helmet, stupid look on my face. Holler.

    Soon-ish -- stopping at a friend's house first, probably, then: I don't know. I'll try and hop back on at her place, eh?

    I've also gotta get out of the stupid work clothes. The ONE day I don't wear "appropriate" gear for the commute.

    Yeah...I'd be down to get a drink or something and have an excuse to go out.

    riding/playing in the snow on my bike today was great ...funny looks from motorists are classic. i thought about putting knobbies on my commuter but i felt fine with 23s... i just have to remember to wear glasses or goggles- my eyes were getting blasted...

    Yeah, my 23s did me A-OK.

    Gogs are essential.



    Ok, I'm really leaving now.

    Rode a bit to get some dinner and it went well. I've never ridden in snow like this so it was different. I am running 27s right now and I felt good. Almost ate **** once.

    Definitely not! I was almost home and went through a walgreens parking lot that had some ice chunks in it. Nice fall though!

    chomping on ice while riding in the snow is the cat's meow. it doesn't really hurt that much and, **** yes, it's so much fun.

    This is why riding on the southside is *way* better than up north - last night an older southside couple looked at me as i was riding by, passing cars in 6 inches of snow, and said to one another "that guy is like a stealth bomber - dark and fast!" (i was wearing dark clothing).

    edit: this is why the soutside is way better than up north for just about everything

    that's only one of the reasons I like the southside so much. everything is better down there.

    I can attest that Gbx was the anti-Stealth Bomber last night...he could be seen for miles.
