RIGHT ON TIME … WINTER, THAT IS

It is like somebody flipped a switch. Suddenly winter weather has arrived on the scene. Snow is in the forecast for tomorrow. I am not ready for winter. We have been so blessed with decent riding weather until yesterday. Yes, starting Monday, December 14th,  everything changed. It got cold and windy … well, we have wind quite often but wind along with cold is a bad combination. It is what it is and we are stuck with it. I could not go out yesterday due to an eye doctor appointment and getting another injection in my eyeball. That usually takes me out of the picture for the day. I was hoping to ride today but I don’t feel like dealing with the cold and wind. And with snow coming I may not be getting out at all. All 3 of my tires are worn out so I have no tread left on them. That is not a good thing when riding on snow. I have been procrastinating changing tires trying to get all the mileage I can out of these tires. They are fine for dry or wet pavement but not for snow. Even brand new the Big Ben Plus tires I run don’t have very much tread on them. I may put my knobby tire back on for the winter months ahead. It does great in the snow.

I have not used the knobby tire for a few years now as I haven’t really needed it. Our trails have been in pretty good shape as far as snow removal. I do like the balloon tires in the snow, but then I like them in any condition.

As I have got older I am finding that I don’t care to go out riding when it is cold.  Actually 40 degrees is about as low as I care to venture out. I may and do go out when it is colder than that but I don’t like doing so.

Yep, winter is here and the winter of my life is here as well. I enjoyed winter a lot more when I was younger.  But as they say … IT AIN[T OVER TIL IT’S OVER. Longing for Spring, I am. I want to …

KEEP ON TRIKIN’
