if so, I'm willing to "ride it out" inside. I really want to ride my MTB Sunday on wider faster tires. I can't wait!

Don't know about the April prediction. While the daily forecast shows a low of 47, if I scroll thru the hourly, the morning temp says 27.

I notice that A LOT as well about the weather report. For some reason the weather report doesn't record the morning low, they go with the evening low, or some such, even though the morning low is really the low temp

heh, +200th post

‘Tain’t Memorial Day yet. I may not ride the bike with studs every day but the bike with the keeps ‘em until nearly then. In the last 10 years, the latest snowfall in Denver was May 14th. The latest snow in Denver every was June 12, 1947.

Denver’s dirty little secret is that it snows here...and it can snow a whole lot in one storm...it seldom lasts for more than a few days. Days of 70F followed by days of -20F aren’t unheard of. It’s called “the warm before the storm” around here.

Looks like we got 5 cm of snow last night. WTF? Looks like the studs might be going back on for tomorrow's commute.

We got few centimeters too but everything has melted and there is no ice anywhere. It's back to regular tires for me.
