First Snowy Commute of the Season
Fifty three degrees, when I left the house this morning. That turned out to be the high temp for the day. By 1:30 PM, it was raining, and the rain turned to snow about an hour before I left the lab.
I had a nice ride home, with big wet flakes falling but melting as soon as they hit the warm pavement. I had forgotten, though, just what an adventure it is to ride a freewheeling bike with rim brakes in freezing precipitation.
There shouldn't be any snow on the roads, tomorrow morning, but the temperature is supposed to drop to 23 degrees, tonight. Might be a bit icy, in spots. So, I pulled the winter commuter out and got it ready to ride. Fixed gear and disc brakes...should be a little more controllable than the RockCombo was, this afternoon.
