Looks Like a Typical March



The above pictures pretty much sum up the conditions right now. I have ridden this type of ice without studs a few years ago and it was a little bit hairy. Tonight though I gave my tires a great big kiss and tried to seduce them once I got back to the Jeep. I looked longingly into their treads and told them they make me so hot as I stroked their sidewall. Quickly I noticed some dog walkers were awkwardly staring as I seem to have interrupted them packing up their pooches.

Well that may not have happened, that is however how I felt about my tires. Schwalbe, Ice Spiker, 2.11's to be exact. I've been quite happy riding with them for the last couple of years and they were simply awesome tonight.

With another failed ride attempt yesterday on the Winter Warrior with a chain snapping near the beginning of a ride and nothing to repair it...
