not a bad start to '19 in chicago.

30 degrees, light SW wind, heavy over cast.

there was more icy residue on the bike path than i had anticipated.

i should have been on my studded-tire winter beast, but the street and sidewalk in front of our home were bone dry, so i was on my regular commuter.

i nearly lost it on one turn across some black ice, but my front tire was able to grab back on to bare asphalt just in the nick of time to avoid going down.
