Enjoy That Ride!

Snow Doesn't Get Much Sweeter Than This!
It snowed last night. Spring snow in North Texas. Where is global warming when we need it? Personally, I believe we're being set up for an unusually blistering hot summer, starting right about next weekend. Still, this was a uniquely nice snow. It covered all the rooftops and vegetation, while leaving the roadways and driveways as clear as one could wish. It was practically perfect for a little trip out on Frankenbike.

Not one to look a gift horse in the mouth, I took Frankenbike out, at CycleDog's orders. By the time I made it to the entrance of an unnamed giant coffee chain, based in Seattle, the snow was disappearing fast, leaving just a little snow remaining in their token element of landscaping.

Kermit kept watch while I sampled the hot drink, along with my free refill. It WAS an enjoyable trip outside, even if it didn't actually qualify as a RIDE. Per Tracy Wilkins, a RIDE must be at least 20 miles and this was under 10.

That's funny, I haven't seen snow here in London Ontario Canada for a couple of weeks now... go an' figur.

Wait, 20 miles is the cut-off to qualify for a ride? That basically eliminates just about everywhere I go. Work, book store, bike shop, grocery shopping... None of them count as rides? I mean, yeah they're short... but I'm still riding! Sorry, you just burst a major bubble for me.

Hmm, Lizzylou, it appears there is a gap between Springfield's Andy Cline who advocates the "One Mile Solution" and Springfield's Tracy Wilkins who considers anything under 20 miles to not be a bike ride. I sense a post coming up on the "Missouri Twilight Zone" in the near future.
