It was enough before dark that I could ride along the river, and enjoy the last rays of sunlights reflected off the Boston skyline.
I've had a hard time getting on the bike mornings this week. I'm either having a bit of a relapse of my old cold, or a new, milder cold. The weather too has relapsed a bit, with more chilly rain, and a couple of cold damp mornings. The dampness at least holds the promise of more spring to come-
and my little front garden is trying to get into the spirit with daffodils, and the first new buds of Sedum peeking out from autumn's dead leaves.
I was heartened that despite the possibly icky forecast two days this week, we had 100% ridership (of the three of us in my office who bike commute. I think after all the icky snow and cold, it takes more than a little chill to stop us.
This is the first year that I've biked through the whole winter, and while it's been good, I feel more tired of it than I have in years past, when spring was a chance to leap back into it. Maybe that's the cold (medical and environmental) speaking, and I'l rally once I'm healthy and the weather is lovely again.
Edited- Interestingly, all three of us who bike to work- ended up meeting in the last couple of blocks from work this morning- it was nicer today than yesterday, and I hope to get home before the last light so that I can enjoy the evening a bit!
