Got the bike out today

March 10, 2012

St. Paul Bike Classic 2006

I took advantage of the nice weather today and went for a bike ride. No, I didn’t take the recumbent. I took my old mountain bike turned road bike (and not very good as either one). I looked in my library and I don’t even have a recent photo of that bike.

I did discover something about early spring riding. Fenders are highly recommended. There are many puddles that are completely across the road and therefore unavoidable. Fenders would have deflected that water back to the road instead of to my back and face.

Overall, it was very nice to get out for a ride.

 

The photo is from 2006 and it was September. It was also a rainy day. Today was clear and mild and actually more like the weather we should have had on that day in 2006. I was able to wear a light vest today instead of a jacket.
