After wensday’s and thursday’s rides reality bit, in the form of two snowfalls, the second qualifying as a blizzard. Then below freezing temps this morning. But the soil temps are still barely above freezing, and pounding in posts for the snowfence on Thursday I encountered no frozen resistance. Temps forecast to reach freezing by wensday, and no significant snow in the forecast. So the solo bike season may be over… But the winter ‘hack season has just begun!

(Sorry for the lousy cellphone pix, my old camera died, new Nikon baby SLR on order. The ‘hack wasn’t stuck, just posed for pictures. Just gently let out the clutch and pulled right out of the snowbank, thanks to Kevin at for the new Heidenau tires that grip so well!)
