tuned up & waiting patiently

Saint John, New Brunswick has received record snow fall this winter and the snow banks are still over my head in many places. If you have not seen this in the news just google images of  “snow saint john new brunswick 2015” to get a sense of it. The total snow fall is well over 400 cm (over 15 feet!) breaking a 52 year record. http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/new-brunswick/saint-john-smashes-52-year-old-snowfall-record-1.3001318

bike tuned up

Being the eternal optimist that I am, I took the bike in for it’s spring tune up. Come on spring!

The winter cyclist

This Hour Has 22 Minutes uploaded a cute 50 second video which show the Canadian Winter Cyclist in its “natural habitat” (click image below). I have a lot of respect for the Winter Cyclist. My friend Holly often commutes to work in the ice & snow with studded tires. She’s a great story teller and cycling in the winter seems to provide her with excellent fodder! Not me…I’m lifting weights to stay in shape until St Paddy’s day at least!
