Nice Day For a Spike Ride
Well, the tires actually have studs, not spikes.
The roads were wet, this morning, and the temps were in the mid 20s, so I swapped wheels over to the studded tires before leaving the house. I think it was the right move. The overpasses were pretty slick, even though the rest of the roads were just wet.
I had forgotten the first rule of studded tire riding: Don't get in a hurry. I rode pretty hard, in both directions, and still took an extra 6 minutes on both legs of the commute.
Tomorrow, back to regular tires.
