The snow finally melted, the sun finally came out and so we FINALLY got in our first bike ride of 2015! 47.15 km on the books and many, many more to go…

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.

bike tuned up

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

Not a great spring for cycling so far…

The sun fooled us again! We went out cycling after work today but the cold and wind were raw so we cut our ride short. We’re already starting to feel the pressure of our 2,000 km goal. Last spring was beautiful and we got a great jump on thing early.

We know people who cycle all winter. Let me tell you, in Atlantic Canada, that is no small feat…cold feet yes…small feat…no! I hate to be a whiner but the truth is we have a narrow band of comfort…not too hot…not too cold…that’s how we like it. Oh…and no wind please.
