There's a challenge to bike every day in April and tweet about it. I don't tweet, but I do bike, so here goes!
We were expecting freezing rain today, but the temperature stayed just a bit warmer. Mallard duck pairs were quacking happily from the rooftops. Chickadees were singing. A light drizzle barely moistened my hair and glasses.
Rainshield pants and jacket kept my clothes dry. (It breathes better than any other rain gear I've tried.)
Not a bad day to start a 30-day cycling challenge.
The bike is a long-wheelbase recumbent by Terry Osell (a Minneapolis builder). Since I bought it in 1996, it's been modified with a new seat, new handlebars, and a new drivetrain with an 8-speed Shimano hub.
