Prairie bike riding thrill: getting passed by a semi going 55+ mph in a no pass zone on a two lane county road with no shoulder. I am going to go clean my cycling shorts now, brb.
Held up on the prairie for a couple weeks, and desperately want to get some long rides in on my bike, but it is the prairie so, you know…wind. Currently: 76 degrees with 19 mph winds out of the south and gusts up to 31 mph.
I am going to regret this.
I am, admittedly, a newbie when it comes to biking winter, and I also recognize that it has been a pretty mild winter for biking so far, but…
…can I just take a second to tell you how awesome baby changing stations in public bathroom stalls are for helping one change into and out of winter biking gear? Real awesome, that is how awesome.
Oh, and apologies in advance to any babies who have to wait to get their diaper changed because I am swapping out my CLIMALITE for an actual t-shirt.
Blergh. I normally don’t bike when the temps are below 40 but a;lksdgajl I am so sick of not being on my bike. I got a tune-up and new fenders two weeks ago and have only been out once since. Shame.
Fuck it and fuck the next 10 days of high-20s to mid-30s weather. I am biking to work.
Biking season starts now. Sorry if you’re behind the curve, WEATHER.
