Spring has made its intentions known. At least to the meteor-ilogical community. Winter slammed its cold body into us during the first week of January and like any good hip-check its presence is still being felt. After a Spring like two weeks, temps have struggled to climb above 1 degrees C forcing any riding to take place with multiple layers and between snow and rain showers. The trainer, my basement and the cycling re-runs I have been watching are now retired, I refuse to revisit them. To add insult to injury, the cold weather has also brought 4 cm of the white stuff. In April!! But, the forecast for next week is improving, bringing some April like temps. For these conditions, the full fender machine is the best choice. Fit some 25Cs and a blinky light and come high-water or flooding the riding will be done outside.
