Lately I've been having dreams of long rides in the country in warm weather. Took the Rawland out to Depot Park today, in shorts and short sleeves, and that pretty much did the trick, at least for now.




Water where there's a current...


Ice in the shady backwaters...


And a binary star on the Shawsheen River...

Spring like

Back when I used to ride, bikes were steel and February was cold and there was ice. Now that I am old and there is new tangled warm weather I went out for a 20 mile loop through Sherborn, Holliston and a bit of Hopkinton. First tried going south to Millis but the road was blocked by a tree that fell and took out a utility pole.
The only ice is on my aging hip, very nice to get out and it nice to post a ride with y’all.

SBP,

As usual, you've arrived before us.

I delighted in yesterday's summery weather with my cross bike last night. Full summer kit and I covered my usual nice weather route instead of the cold weather 20 or 25 mile abbreviated versions. 117 through Lincoln is downright dreadful as is sections of Monument st in Concord/Carlisle. I equate them to bombed out runways. Especially in the dark where the 38's are managing them far better than the 25's or 28's on my road bikes. Despite zig zagging I've managed to hit a few.
