cold ride * hot chai
Today is another cold but beautiful winter day here in my corner of the Midwest. It’s bright and sunny and the roads are cleared and ready to be ridden on. Despite the 28 F chill, a winter bike ride is just what I needed to get my lungs going and heart pumping this morning.
Nerp still needs those fenders put on but we were just so busy this weekend that we never got around to it. But with the roads dry and with almost no slush left, fenderless Nerp did just fine in getting me to my destination.
In fact, I was enjoying my winter bike ride so much that I decided to take an extra detour through the historic neighborhood downtown, enjoying the sun and the view of the beautiful old houses. Once my fingers and toes were decidedly numb, I parked Nerp outside my destination and entered the coffeehouse to warm up. Armed with a delicious chai latte, I can now sit and relax in the warmth of the coffee shop and tackle some of that syllabus writing on my agenda for this afternoon.
How is your Tuesday morning going? Enjoying any nice winter walks or bike rides yourself? Happy riding!
