All things considered, a happy ending


I went for a ride the other day and was pretty sure I had frostbite of the toes upon my return. Today I decided to treat myself to Pearl Izumi Cyclone Toe Covers and Defeet Wool-E-Ator socks. Hey, I have every intention of riding through the fall and into winter. I’ll let you know how they work out. Besides getting colder, it is also getting dark a lot sooner. That means as cyclists, we are even harder to see. Adam Durand had a close call, and he and the bike made it through with no apparent injuries. I agree with Smudgemo’s comment (#6) re always getting the other involved party’s information. Even the witnesses if there are any. Hopefully, Adam and the bike are still feeling no ill effects twenty-four hours later. Keep riding, ride safe.

    Thanks for linking to RocBike.com and Adam’s story. We’re all glad he’s OK! I’m originally from Western Mass (Lenox) and will be back in the general area soon. Maybe a ride is in order…

    I envy you, it’s getting way too cold here to ride (for me at least), but your recent ride reports suggest you haven’t let the cold stop YOU.

    I guess that shows my lack of commitment to biking! I am not willing to buy special socks!

    Talking of accessories, I have just been waffling about the whole “to clipless or not to clipless” debate:

    What’s your take on all that? As you can see, I still have mixed feelings…
