Seems one of my virtual biking compadres was creamed and killed by a FedEx Semi yesterday. Won’t see posts by Kirke Johnson again. Not the reason I wanted to be posting more often.
CUMTD says today was a record cold of 8 but I wasn’t cold riding in — but there was a nice tailwind (and it was prob’ly 14 where I was). The snow pants are nice, but I wish somebody would actually design snow pants for a bicycle — skinny at the ankles, please…
Took me halfway in to reconstruct yesterday’s “I know I had a good idea!! What was it ?!?!?” — a place to meet, eat, and do the technology thing. Pizza M tries but it’s too noisy in the back. Parkland COllege should do it out of their hospitality department.
I did ride faster going in — on purpose, not just because of the tailwind. I’m really glad I ignored the inner suggestion that really, it’s uncomfortable that cold. (I’m also somewhat sure that Tuesday, with the 25 mph winds and blowing snow and 9 degrees, that it *would* have been uncomfortable — but not entirely…)
Spring is just around the corner though 😉
