    Oh, I'm envious! I'm getting over a nasty respiratory flu and could only gaze at the snow as I had to DRIVE TO WORK today.

    Last year we got snowed in, but this year temps were in the high 40's so I went down to the River Trail and rode through Two Rivers park. Very few cyclists, but lots of pedestrians. About 13 miles total. But a fun and quiet ride.

    Lovely day for a ride here on Wisconsin's West Coast as well - temperatures in the balmy low 20s, and just a bit of a breeze. The university had more signs of human life than I would have liked, but there was still some nice fresh snow to ride through. Overall, much more fun than Christmas rides I've done in those warm places!

    My husband & I went for a wonderful 40 degrees day ride around town and to the park where we watched ducks slipping around on the iced-over river. So few cars --LOVED it!
    "If I ride, I will know the way the trees smell after the rain... My breath will fill the air instead of smoke and car exhaust... Road rage will turn into laughter and I won't be a boy or a girl, I will just be a rider...and the planet will cool down and survive and thank me for riding with flowers & glaciers & fireflies & snow days off from school... I will be strong... I will only use oil in my chains and oil tankers will haul chocolate milk" by People for Bikes http://www.peopleforbikes.org/
