Wet snow

Thursday, January 17th, 2008

It snowed overnight, and with temperatures at exactly 32 degrees this morning, most of the roads were clear, but a few sections had snow and a few more had disgusting slush. It felt warm, compared to most of my recent commutes. I saw a cyclist on the bike path who had slick tires, and he was having a little bit of trouble. I let some air out of my knobby tires last night in anticipation of the snow, and I had great traction this morning. I definitely think that leaving the knobby tires on my old mountain bike for the winter has been the way to go.

Sarah and I are going to Chicago this weekend to party with some friends from Northwestern. We’ll also get to revisit some of our old haunts in Evanston and Chicago. It should be a good time, but that’ll mean no riding over the weekend. I need to get out soon and do some longer rides; my fitness level is really slipping.

    Bah. All of your levels are THROUGH THE ROOF. Not being as insane for one weekend isn’t going to kill you. You can still be insane, just in different ways. 😉

    Letting a little air out of the knobbies – especially for the weather we’re having now (about an inch of wet snow) – is just the ticket. Good move.

    Enjoy the weekend off the bike, and enjoy your time with friends in the Windy City!
