Yee-hah. It was a balmy 36 degrees today and I got my scoot out this morning. Made it out of the driveway with it's covering of mostly ice/snow. Just went slow and put my boots down like outriggers to get to the road. It isn't far, just icy.
Sun was shining bright. The roads were mostly dry. Running down along the river I kept my eyes peeled for ice patches, but didn't encounter any.
Got a little over an hour of saddle time before I had to come back home for my Sunday job. It was great. Hands got a little cold as I wore my favorite gloves and not my big puffy warm ones.
Worst problem was shifting. A couple weeks back I took off my boots and hit the dance floor for a couple moments. My sock caught and I rolled my shifter big toe under and sprained the bejeebers out of it. In my excitement to hit the road I fergot to tape it up.
Riding was well worth the minimal discomfort. Come on SPRING!
