We’ve had a really strange winter in Calgary this year… not really cold, but with random snow like today… and I’d expect this to continue throughout spring.
Today was -5C… and snowy, which is my favourite weather to bike in. I don’t have to wear tons of gear for the cold and the paths are crisp and clear. For some reason, in this kind of weather I feel like I’ve been given a challenge and am conquering that challenge. I hate it when the snow becomes slush… like it will later in the day.
The average person in Calgary won’t use the paths in the snow. So, this morning’s ride was with the “regulars” who have been out all winter. And, I got to use my studded tires, which haven’t seen a lot of action this year.
