It was another cold morning in Louisville. I had trouble pushing myself out the door. I did my best to not over-dress for the 20 degree temperatures. I was wearing work clothes, and didn’t want to get sweaty.
Once on the bike, I was cold. I wanted to hurry and get to work, so I pushed harder. That meant I was cold and sweaty when I got to work. Oh well.
I’ve been riding the rSogn every day this week so far. I won’t be tomorrow, as I’ve taken the rear wheel off to haul to the bike shop to have it rebuilt.
Earlier in the day, we were facing down a possible winter storm. It had warmed up to just above freezing while I was at work, and began a light rain. I had an appointment to give blood after work, so I rode there.
When I left the Red Cross, the rain had turned to sleet. The roads were just wet, no icing yet. Traffic had gotten quite heavy though. I rode out Baxter Ave and stopped at Lil Cheezers, a new-ish place that I hadn’t been before. They have gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches, which just sounds wrong, but it tasted good. I also had a West Sixth IPA from Lexington Kentucky.
From there I took residential streets home. There were some slightly slippery spots, but with some care, I didn’t fall.
I finally got around to doing the dishes at home. I also removed the rear wheel from the rSogn, took the cassette and tire (tyre for Timothy) off, and have strapped it to the Big Dummy for tomorrow’s commute.
I have mostly decided to ride the Populaire on Sunday. I was planning on riding the ‘bent, but it seems my new wheel for the rSogn will be ready Saturday, so maybe I’ll be on it. We’ll see.
