I've been having bike cabin fever lately... and decided to ride the Pashley to rehearsal despite the -20 weather.
It was fantastic! Since it's Family Day here in Edmonton (long weekend) the roads were really quiet. I just rode in tire tracks on the road. It was crunchy and at times icy, but that's no big deal compared to what makes biking in the winter really annoying for me. Cold I can deal with. I HATE wind and slush. Today it was cold but sunny - beautiful!
So I rode over to my friend Daniel's place for a duo harpsichord rehearsal. Nothing like some Bach to make a long weekend. Daniel also happens to have the most fantastic house (we call it Mozart's salon). We played some harpsichord and had tea. How very civilized!
