Well, I made it in to work. I still need to make it home, but what a nice morning to make the first trip of the year by bike to work.
It’s officially spring now. Besides getting to ride in, the trees were alive with the sound of robins and red-winged blackbirds and countless other songbirds that have made it north. The music hit me as soon as I opened the garage door to meet the morning. Despite the temperature being a balmy 20 degrees (F), it couldn’t have been a nicer morning.
Legs felt ok, the ST400 performed great, and was passed by only 3 cars the whole 17 miles in. Definitely a good day so far.
edit: I did make it home :)
