I am getting more into this idea of riding my bike each day.
Sure, it would only take doing a couple of overtimes to pay for the repairs needed to get my car up and running again… but I feel like if I could make it through the Winter riding a bike, that I can ride it anytime.
Winter in Walla Walla can be a mixture of elements…. Fog or cold or rain or cold rain or sleet or snow or foggy snow or ice or chinook winds or…. you get the picture.
In regards to weather, rain is a concern of mine since I currently lack the needed foul weather gear– but I am getting that issue taken care of. But my biggest concerns are the icy, sleet and snow.
Last Sunday I spoke to Jesse who does alot of bike riding about fenders and about studded bike tires for those icy roads. Jesse is an advocate of the studded bike tires, he told me that they work rather well. Jesse also shared that his biggest concern are cars; this is because of cars lack of control on ice and snow.
I am getting rather enthused about this whole all-season bike thing.
I will still do a couple of overtimes and get my car fixed, to not do so would be poor stewardship in regards to the car. And just because it is running, does not mean that I cannot still ride my bike–although I know if I have a car option on those snowy cold days the choice to ride will be a hard one to make.
To be continued….
ps: Congratulations to (the above mentioned) Jesse who will be Ordained to the Diaconate this coming Sunday at St. Silouan’s Orthodox Church.
