My bike going in the shop for a tune up, and I should be riding soon. To get you up to speed, I ride very early in the morning, as long as it's warmer than 50 degrees. Those days are coming.
Here's what concerns me. I drive many of the same roads I bike and they're an absolute mess. If there aren't potholes, there are sloppy patch jobs. Even though I have a light on my bike, and the street lights provide decent illumination, I'm still afraid I'll hit a pothole and go flying over the handlebars.
I have noticed some filling and paving operations in recent days. It's a good thing. However, some of the roads I use need a little more than a patch and a fill. It looks like, at least early in the season, my rides will be filled with excessive caution.
