A Fun Ride

Today's ride home was much more fun than the ride in the alleged blizzard last Tuesday. That ride was simply hard in a few spots. Most notably in the +30mph headwind/crosswind section. I was going as hard as I could and managing 7mph. But I still rolled home in the usual amount of time.

Today was very nice. Just zipping through the snow. All you could hear was the crunch of the wheels moving through it. I love riding like this. The world is quiet and still.

The semi-scary bit was when I departed the Mississippi River bike path onto the streets. I was much more concerned about the cagers and their lack of skills. By the time I got home, I had a pretty nice beard-cicle going. Nowhere as nice as Grand Pa Kim's though.
