98 Bottles of Beer on the Wall


It's funny, this was the kind of day that I have been avoiding for the past two months but it was the only day that I could ride to work so there was no stopping me.  It's not that I haven't ridden in this weather before it's just not my favorite and the wind wasn't making it any better.


Not only did I have to wear my Lake 303s, I had to break out the Lobster Gloves and my Windstopper Fleece hunting jacket.  In fact by the time I got to the office I was sweating because that jacket is so warm and I had the zip pits wide open!


Roads in Newtown were absolute crap.  The snow on the shoulders actually provided a lot of traction but it was the moral rural roads that I use for my route that had to be ridden with a lot of caution. There were quite a few icy patches that I was able to get around but this one (below) on Tunnel Road is one that I had to walk.


The ride home was just as cold.  The only respite was all of the icy patches that I had to ride around or even walk were gone.  Despite the cold, the ride was totally worth it.
