Woke up this morning to icy, snow-coated streets here in Munising, Michigan. Yay! (I think).
It's time to mount the studded tires.
(It's also past time to see whether my snowblower will start after sitting all spring and summer).
On a really good note, two acquaintances of mine here in town have decided to join in on the winter-biking fun. They just put an order in for studded tires for their own bikes. By next week there could be three of us crazy people riding bikes out in the blowing snow and cold.
I'm excited, but also a bit sad at the realization that it'll be months before I enjoy a warm, summer's-day ride again.
