In a move that confirmed my spouse's growing suspicion that I am insane, I took the mountain bike out for a ride today.
There is a wee bit of heavy, wet snow out there!
I only rode about 9 miles but it was really a lovely day with fresh white snow on the ground, branches, and rooftops. It seemed like a good way to start the year. I put out the call to Bike Ypsi folks, but only our adopted Ann Arbor member showed up. That's okay, we always have fun riding together and his soaked clothes made me appreciate the technical cold weather gear I've acquired over the past few months!
My first ride since the hip surgery 3 weeks ago and my first ride of 2008. Yay!
