Heat Wave

Wow, it’s supposed to get all the way up to 37 today.  That’s going to feel downright balmy on the ride home.

Did the same ride as yesterday with the same clothes.  There are still 4 or 5 icy spots where I need to unclip and walk/slide myself and the bike across/over, but I’m getting more comfortable riding through some of the others.  It’s not a problem as long as I don’t try to brake or steer and can maintain my momentum.  If I can do that, I ride through; otherwise, I walk.

The bolt holding my rear fender to the brake bridge came loose near the end of my ride.  I probably didn’t tighten it enough when I put the fender on.  Need to keep an eye on this and maybe check it before each ride.

The ride home this evening will probably be my last ride this week, as we’re supposed to get one of those “Alberta Clipper” systems tonight that are famous for dumping just enough snow to mess up the roads and close schools.
