Riding in the snow is fun. It’s ice you have to worry about.
The winter storm that passed through last night and this morning dumped several inches before I even got out of bed. My daughter and I took a short ride around the neighborhood right after the plow went by. The road surface was still covered, but not too deep. Riding through the deep snow in the driveway was amusing.
I convinced my daughter to go into town with me, so we went back home, I switched bikes, and we both grabbed helmets.
We ran a few errands and stopped at a coffee shop to warm up. The main roads were still quite snow covered at this point. We went home, and my daughter made some “snow ice cream“.
I had one other errand I had forgotten earlier, so I packed up and headed out again, alone this time. By now the roads were mostly just slush. I’m really glad the LHT has fenders.
I finished my errands and had an enjoyable day. It was much better than sitting indoors the whole day, and we didn’t fall on any ice.
