Your lucky to live in such a beautiful area. Just wondering what tires you are using and how they worked for the conditions.
Looks like my early spring riding in early April/late March in Ottawa when I put the bike on the road before the snow cover has completely melted. Lots of sand, dirt and grit left on the road and the roads are always wet with melt.
I've found a big difference in tires in these cooler and wet conditions, I guess depending on which rubber compounds they utilize. I was surprised when I installed my Continental Conti Motions as they are slippery as heck in these cooler and wet conditions, in the warm and dry though their fine. Also I've found, Adventure/tour tires like the Pirelli Scorpions, with their deeper tread grooves, were less effected by sand, dirt and gravel on pavement than smoother tires.
