When I went to pour myself a cup of coffee I looked out my front window. The sun was out and the roads were just wet, no longer frozen, and the thermometer was showing a favorable temperature (above freezing).
My mind wander immediately to the possibility of a real bike ride today. Though that thought was soon filled with doubt as the sun disappeared rather quickly and I pulled up Weather.com which is predicting rain for later today, which I knew was going to be the case. Still it was a welcome treat to see the sun when it wasn’t expect and to long for the road on my two-wheel friend.
Now that the temperatures during the day seem to be hovering around the 40 degree mark there will be more chances for weekend rides in the coming weeks. I’ll be ever hopeful that we’ve finally turned the dark corner of winter and heading to the warm sunshine of spring.
