Nothing earth shattering to report, just took winter Kona out for her first spin this year. We haven't had too much snow, but with the wacky rain we had yesterday (which is generally all frozen today), I was very thankful for the studded tires.
Temperatures weren't cold, so that wasn't really an issue. Just put on the parka and started pedaling.
Today's bike ride is brought to you by Don, who very kindly pumped up my tires for me.
One other thing to note: I really keep my winter saddle low! Low enough so that I can get a solid toe down to deploy the tripod, in the event of bailing out. Riding that way on my Pashley would be super weird, but on the winter bike (mountain bike) it's very comfortable.
Had lunch with a lady friend, picked up a bag of groceries. All that normal stuff.
How is winter riding treating you guys?
