8 degrees C
1/500 sec. F16
"I'm only riding on the sidewalk because the road is so wet!" Winn tells me when we meet up on 95 Avenue and 152 Street.
I notice that even riding out of the traffic that his glasses are speckled with dirty water and his jacket also has been drenched with road splash. This Canadian Tire special is his winter bike and although it felt like spring this afternoon, I suggested that it might be too soon to put away the winter bike.
I have no intention of putting mine away since we are bound to get more snow in the coming weeks and why ruin one of my better bikes with road debris when I can replace everything on my $30.00 bike and still be ahead of the game?
