Ran some errands yesterday during the snow and the riding was really good. Once you got some speed you were able to motor right through the slop. The drivers were all freaked out though, and it was bumper to bumper on the main streets. I'm always amazed that here in the Midwest where it snows all winter, a few inchs on the ground still manages to turn the city into a total shit show everytime. Although I will say this though, we were shoveling tonight and I had literally no place to put the snow from our driveway. If it keeps up like this, it's going to become a problem for everyone.
I was cruising down Hennepin with no one behind me and a car ahead, when a lady stuck in parking lot traffic rolled down her window from the oncoming lane and yelled "Not Smart" to me as I sailed past. All I could muster back was an unimaginative "fuck you," and that made me sad. Sad for not having a better comeback, and sad that people think you'd have to be crazy to get around under your own power during adverse conditions.
Have fun sitting in your car, asshole.
Bikes are fucking unstoppable.
