Taste of Spring

After a week of temperatures in the single digits, it felt good to have a blast of warm weather hit us at the beginning of the week. Since the trails were muddy from thawing snow and ice, I disengaged the road bike from the trainer and headed out on the streets on my Trek. It felt great to ride on the road, although sand and debris made it somewhat tricky. The sun was shining, New Englanders were in a euphoric mood over the Patriots Super Bowl win the night before, (drivers seemed especially courteous), and it was warm. We still have quite a bit of winter left to go, but it feels less discouraging than it did a week ago.
