The difference between today's ride in a snow storm, as opposed to yesterday's messy commute to the gym, was that I didn't have to be anywhere after my ride and could just enjoy the snow. Temps dropped overnight, and the steady snow that began falling in the morning was light and icy. It slightly stings your cheeks when you're heading into the wind, but it's not as messy as yesterday's big flakes.
I bundled up today, choosing goggles for my eyewear, (smart choice), and headed down the trail. It was a peaceful ride and I could hear birds chirping in the storm, spotting several robins and red cardinals standing out against the white snow. It was an easy-paced 7.5 miles on the Kona today -- and I wasn't the only one out there enjoying the snow.
