Springlike

Thursday, February 28th, 2008

The road seemed to flow effortlessly beneath me this morning. This was one of those times where everything clicks and riding feels so easy and natural — it’s not an unfamiliar feeling, but it doesn’t usually happen when I’m riding my clunky old mountain bike. The sun was shining, the air was calm, the roads were dry, and my ride was nearly effortless. The sun’s warmth felt great on my face, and I was thankful to be outdoors. It felt like a spring morning, except for one factor: it was only 13 degrees Fahrenheit outside. But between my layers and riding, I felt more comfortable than I have for a while. A great ride to work.

    LOL at the bluebirds … yeah, I can see that. Of course, they’d have frickin’ icicles hanging off of their little beaks, but what’s a little frozen water among friends?

    tex: that sounds lovely, wow! This winter I’ve been riding an old 26″ mountain bike with knobbies every day, because of the snow and ice. My road bike has 700x28s on it and any time I get a chance to ride that, it just FLIES.
