What I learned on my ride today
You should never try to “save time” by not switching your bike lights out. The weather has been decent the last few days, and temps have been warm enough to melt a lot of the snow off the roads. So, I decided to take the Specialized Allez out for one last spin in 2008. My plan to make it home before it got too dark was not a success. The picture above is what it looked like outside when I got home. I am happy to say, and would like to thank profusely, all the motorists I came across gave me a wide berth and passed slowly. And none of them yelled out the obvious (“Idiot!”) as they went by. Temps were dropping, though, probably didn’t want to roll down a window. I am home safely, and enjoying my post ride snack. Sam Adams Winter Lager tonight. Cheers to a lesson learned.
