A humorous commute, I thought
A very slippery ride to work this morning. I had to walk my bike for the first block, because there were several inches of snow and my tires were going side-to-side just as easily as forwards. I felt like I was at sea! Once I got to 13th, it was much better. Not great, but better. Adequate control. The most noticeable affect of the snow was all the sidespray I got from cars passing me. If I had been cold, it would have been a miserable commute. But my polarfleece pants held me in good stead, so being splattered with slush just felt like slapstick humor in some movie. I hope someone got to witness it - I thought it was pretty funny.
