The Frosty Bike Ride.

The Frosty Bike Ride was rescheduled to today after our heavy snow on February 4th. The route was also changed from the Fox to the Zoo and back rather than Roca because the Jamaica North is still snow covered. There were over 150 riders signed up. I rode with lots of friends and we had hot chocolate at the turnaround point in the parking lot of the Zoo.

The Fox had burgers and fries for everyone and there were lots of raffle prizes. Tony and I came away with Road ID gift certificates. And they even gave away a nice Giant bike from Cycleworks.
Riding to the Fox, the Frosty Bike Ride and the trip home came to 20.1 miles for the day.

All dressed up and no place to go.

The rack and bag for my Trek FX 7.6 came in today. I got it put on this evening and can't wait to use it. Today's ride to work was 18'F. the ride home was 60'F. With a forty degree swing I'm having to haul layers home that I needed to wear on the way into the office. I've got by with my messenger bag, but I'd rather haul stuff on the bike than my back. Problem is, we've got a big winter storm rolling in, so it's hard telling when I'll ride it again.
This morning had a killer sunrise. They always look better from behind bars than through a windshield.
I'll ride the Austro-Dieamler on Saturday's Frosty Bike Ride since we'll be pedaling in snow. Oh well, it'll give us something to laugh about when we're on a sweltering ride this summer. Today's miles to work and back = 21.0

With a new commuter and great weather finding this sidewalk art in the park was serendipity. Today's miles to work and back = 20.8
