I’ve got a countdown to the first day of spring running on my desktop.
Spring is on Thursday, 20 March 2014
33 days, 6 hours remain till Spring
First Day Of Spring
Okay, the counter doesn’t say “whee!” I added that bit.
While I am a big fan of winter running, I miss my bike. And this year I haven’t been doing much bike-wise on the off season. My plan is to start early and ride lots! Get the pesky base kilos out of the way while it’s still miserable out. I don’t need warm sunny days for riding but the temperatures we’ve had this winter plus the amounts of ice and snow have made it all but impossible for all but the hardened commuters/fat tire cyclists.
But next week. there are days where the temperatures are above freezing, for the first time in awhile. The university is on spring break and while my travel plans have changed (no riding in the American South for me) I plan to get my bike out.
