Yes, I know, I probably should know better. My personal rule is not to ride when there is snow on the ground.
But, this was just a little snow. And it was cold, so the snow was not at that dangerous half-melted stage. And it’s supposed to get sunny today, so the afternoon commute should be fine.
So I did it. I ride my bike today.
Luckily, there is not much else to report. I was a bit nervous at points, particularly when crossing the busy C Street-Blair’s Ferry corner (not a place you would want to slip)—but nary a slide took place on the way in.
I only regret is that I wore just a single pair of socks. I decided, and I think I was right, that it was not quite cold enough for long underwear. But a second part of socks would definitely have helped, as the one part of my body that suffered a bit on the way in was the part on the pedals.
Still, here I am. Another riding day. The dusting of snow was not enough to prevent me from biking.
It was close, though.
