It isn’t Spring quite yet.

I have a new mantra:  it’s never as cold riding as it standing in the doorway.  The days seem even fuller than incrementally longer; no saturday rides and the routine isn’t really enough to keep the pounds away.  I resolved to ride, even in the dark and even though the temperature never quite made it to 25º (-4 for you folks overseas).  Easily the most relaxing ride in the last month.  I stopped to take a few pictures, but it was much more fun riding.  I just wish I trusted my fellow drivers more on the put in and get out portions.

This captures what it felt like to ride -- the snowflakes shimmered in my lights and riding moved me in a little bubble of awareness traversing the night.
