Ok, for about two weeks now I wanted to write a post about spring. The weather was getting warmer, I was ready to get my bike out and thinking about riding. Signed up again for the MS Ride - this year it is the Mason Dixon Challenge and takes place in Gettysburg July 21. I have been riding my bike indoors, (I have a special stand for it) but that isn't the same at all. We need to get busy and ride, M & I are signed up to do a Ocean to Bay ride that takes place down in DE (Bethany/Fenwick Island) on April 16th. I'm not sure I'm up for doing 30 miles. Actually I'm as much concerned about stopping & starting as I am riding. My left knee seems to have issues, and visions of how I broke my ankle last January keep coming back. But I can't let that stop me.
So, we had the warm weather, even got up to close to 70 once or twice. Really nice! But mother nature wasn't through with us. So yesterday it dropped back down in the mid 20's to mid 30's and they predicted snow flurries over night. We didn't seem to get them, but I did see it spitting snow this morning. Not enough to run my windshield wipers but enough you could see it. So we are back to damn bitter cold and I don't like it. My knee doesn't like it much either. So I guess I'm back to riding my bike inside the house. Or else wrapping up really well and trying to brave the wind. Even without a wind, you still pick up quite a breeze riding.
I'm more than ready for winter to go away and spring to stay.
