April 13 and still snowing!
The only way I could justify to myself to get out on the road today was that I'd be super comfortable in my new Gore-tex jacket, which is about what it takes to survive the spring here. 80km of snow and sleet, and I was dry and warm inside, and just watched the gusting wind roll the beaded droplets right off my jacket. The Gore-tex helmet cover is a saver too - so light, so small, and breathable. Looks like another night of snow to make the spring training harder. All in I don't mind it, it's fun to get geared up and be able to ride comfortably, but I do aspire to shorts and jersey rides just around the corner.
