30 Days of Biking. Day 1

It almost didn’t happen.  Last year on this date we got a snow storm.  This year,  a wicked pissah Nor’easter with heavy rain and snow mix throughout the day put the ride in jeopardy.   Around 8 PM the storm had abated but the night was sultry.  I got the Scott SUB 40, (speedy urban bike, 40) lit up for a night ride and headed to the town center.

2016 30 days of biking day 1

The bike path was dark and deserted.  A rabbit scooted across  defying the odds of the two of us, the only two souls out, crossing paths.  A mile out, and a mile back was the extent of the ride.  Being out alone at night. witnessing the tail end of a storm heading out to sea, was priceless.   I will tell people how nice, in spite of the stormy weather, the ride felt.  Most, even many who ride bikes, will not understand.  But there are those who will know this feeling.

2017 30 days of biking, day 1.  Night ride.  Down low glow light under the water bottle, Blinkey on the seat stem.  Monkeylectric light on the front wheel.  Head light on the front fork.   All pimped out and no one saw me.
