I'm in the same boat as you are. I'm so tired of snow, I only got out on the road 4 times in January. Most roads around here have lost any breakdown lane that they had. Plus my winter bike is with my son at his college, so i've been taking out one of my Zipp's. It still has it's tri spoke and disc on it for wheels. I'm checking out roads friday to see if I can find a good stretch to hit this weekend.

I was going to hit the Cape Cod Rail Trail this past Sunday but my car went in the shop Saturday unexpectedly and I was stranded in my basement tuning my rides. Now it's snowing on the cape ... If you've never been it's a nice long flat stretch and they stay warmer (generally) so the path is clear. I just discovered it last summer, and I can't wait to go back. Yesterday would have been choice!

I'm so sick and tired of the snow. I have actually started to seriously hate the stuff.

Every week we get hit by at least 2 snow storms. Just when one goes away there's another one right behind it. God Jesus Christ on a pogo stick! Enough with the snow already...

I had a great ride Sunday - it got so warm! - and spent some time cleaning up my road bike & commuter.

Now the commuter is all glopped up again

At least I got to hit some fresh powder on my driveway tonight...

Brian, that's a funny funny snow track. Almost as amusing as my cats' tracks.

KitN, resist the urge to take the Lord's name in vain. I know it's hard, and aliens may be the master race , but just in case ... you know?

Reg: Sunday in the Northeast, GLAD SOMEBODY GOT OUT!
