it’s a beautiful day for a ride – cycling

21 degrees F, with a dusting of snow and blue sky and sun. The perfect day to ride.

May every day be a great day.

    How beautiful! The snow fascinates me – so pretty as it dusts all it lands on in that icing sugar kind of way.

      I love the snow. But…. it can make you miserable. The key is to play in it, make snow angels, snow men, ski.

      A fresh snowfall hides all the problems in the whole world.

    Thanks for starting my day with a chuckle, Bill! You are quite the adventurer. Reminds me of doing donuts in the snow when I was a kid! πŸ˜€

  6. I am a winter bicyclist as well, but we change to studded tires. If we are really lucky we might use the lakes as bicycle paths. πŸ™‚

    Brings back memories. Vancouver doesn’t have “dustings” of snow. When we do have snow, it is wet, wet, wet. I end up wearing rubber boots with thick stockings. What a wonderful day you had! Thanks for letting me tag along…

    I don’t think biking at that temp. I think hot tea and warm blankets, but we enjoy things in different ways. Glad you enjoyed yourself.
