sounds like you got off lucky! "When lonely feelings chill the meadows of your mind, Just think if Winter comes, can Spring be far behind?"Well, I did for about fifty feet anyhow... after that it was hike a bike till it dried out and I looped back on roads instead of the path later on. Nice ride along a small lake that I usually only do on weekends when people expect to see cyclists out there. This time of year I think it’s chancier than ever to be on the roads since they’re not really expecting people out on bikes.
A teeny bit sore here and there but all part of the adventure! Last time I did this trick it was near Lake Placid in some very soft sand off the road shoulder on a HOT summer day. This time I had a lot more clothes on, no road (or ice) rash.
Great looking bike ! Do those battery covers increase your range noticeably in the cold and if so where can I find them?Yesterday I put Schwalbe Smart Sams, a new chain, front sprocket and 11&13 tooth cogs on the rear cassette on the Delight Mountain. I then went for a 50 mile ride out through the farmland surrounding Bellingham in rather chilly weather (36 degrees). The skies were full of migratory water birds including hundreds of Trumpeter Swans. It was a glorious, invigorating ride.
