On Friday mornings, some guys at church get together for a little coffee and conversation before work. It is always a good time and, since preparations were made last night, I crawled out of bed early and peered out of the window to check the weather. There was unexpected snow accumulations on the ground.
Figuring that slow, careful travel on the fixed gear would be a little fun, I bundled up, turned on the red, rear, blinking light, and pedaled out into the silent dark.
It was an interesting ride. Slushy and slippery. It's only a couple of miles each way, but coming home requires a climb of a hill with a slope of about 5% to 6%. Traction was hit and miss, but I was able to get up with out too many scares. Another good day for a ride.
