When I took these photos two weeks ago, I was marveling at the lovely spring thaw. In comparison to the scenery today, these photos look downright chilly. Now the snow is almost totally gone (knock on wood!) with only a few ice patches.
I loved my ride on Betty Foy today, so smooth and peppy – and sunny!
I also loved all the bicyclists coming out of the woodwork after hibernation. There are so many more bicyclists on the streets now than when I took these photos two weeks ago, that’s for sure. I always enjoy this time of year, when the streets begin to fill out with other cyclists. Although having my run of the bike lanes in the winter has a certain charm, sometimes it feels lonely.
I’m looking forward to taking some longer rides once the weather warms up a bit, like a cupcake tour of the city – stay tuned for more info on that brilliant idea, inspired by Bike Skirt. :)
Is anyone gearing up to bike again after taking most of the winter off? If so, welcome out of hibernation!
