|Oakwood Dive today.|
It has warmed up recently and some of the snow has melted, which widened the streets a little and gave us shoulders to ride on. It was 21F this afternoon so I tucked my pants into my high wool socks, fired up the Ol' Coldnago and took it out for a spin. Wow, it doesn't take much to get my legs shaking after the winter induced layoff. Oakwood Drive is still a frozen "wintery mix" mess, and it is a bitch to ride a bicycle on. Or drive on for that matter. Once I get out to Wedge Street it's a little better, but not much. I live within the city limits of a town of 20,000 people and I still often need a 4-wheel drive to get to my home. We really should rename the street. "Oakwood Drive" implies that you can actually DRIVE on it. Oakwood Stuck? Oakwood Dive? Yeah, maybe Dive.
