It appears old man winter is finally loosening his grip on Michigan. (Dare I type that sentence?)
With temperatures close to the 50s over the weekend, some folks may have busted out the grill. I dug around my shed and got my bike out.
My office in Grand Rapids is only about a mile and a half away from my house. But it costs $14 a day to park there. It makes sense most days to commute on my bike.
But I don't bike to work in the winter. I’m just not that hardcore. The black ice, the wind chill, it’s daunting. I already hate driving in the snow. I can’t imagine riding my bike in it. I just can’t.
But people do it. Maybe you’ve seen them around your town? They’ve got those weird fat tire bikes and full face masks with icicle mustaches. They’re crazy, right?
