Where is spring? Enough already!
I can ride to the office at this temperature, just not comfortably, so today I broke out the big guns! Overbooties and over mitts! Well, the overbooties at least. I can always ride with Lobster Gloves but even at this temperature they are too warm and that is why I like riding with my old, ratty Cannondale winter riding gloves with the over mitts. Never got cold today!
The reason for the stop and subsequent photo session was a clicking sound coming from my front tire. My fear was that I picked up something metal and extraction would surely mean a flat tire but before I inspect my tire closer this kind lady stopped her car wondering if I needed any help thinking that I had a problem with the bike. She even offered to let me use her phone! Thanked her for her kindness and told her I was fine. And the tire was fine, too, just a few small rocks trapped in the treads. Of course I always carry two spare tubes and these tires are puncture resistant. You can never be too careful!
