Two Wheels - Six Strings

Random news and thoughts about various two-wheeled projects and music, especially my band, Skull Full Of Blues.

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.
