Snow is bad for riding

Just got another 40cm dump of snow on Wednesday and a few more cm this evening. Can't wait for spring to ride again! ~45 more days?

Ugh the feeling is mutual. The gravel they dump on the roads for 'traction' is a real buzzkill when the blacktop starts to show through around here.

Planning to tug the bike to TX for hill country riding and MotoGP in April so theres riding in 7-8 weeks no matter what!

Rode to work Wednesday and Thursday, inbetween snows in KC. Wednesday afternoon was beautiful, about 50. The others were below freezing, but dammit, it was worth it! First ride since Jan 9th, and it will be a while before the streets are clear again. Cold I'll deal with. Snow and ice, not so much.
