I didn't end up riding to work today, although I thought about it for a good long minute.
I walked to the Scientist's building last night, retrieved Gilbert, and headed home, but it was still really gnarly riding, and I even fell over once (admittedly on a piece of unpaved path). The Vassar street cycletrack was beautifully clear and wonderful to ride down, especially compared to the gnarly icy streets.
One of my co-workers rode in today and was regretting it and planning on taking the train home. He said he nearly wiped out twice, and it just didn't feel safe.
I'm afraid it's going to get worse before it gets better- predictions of freezing rain/ slush/ snow tomorrow doesn't sound like biking weather to me (nor like driving weather truth be told).
There's a chance it will warm up a bit and we'll get real rain on Wednesday, so we'll see if that helps a bit.
Until then, I'm just going to have to resign myself to cabin fever..
