|The ever intrepid snow dog.|
Tonight was another after-dark ride, in fact, the 11th out of the 11 days of this year so far. Even though it's been over a week since I finished the Tarik Saleh Bike Club Challenge, I've continued to ride more than I would have ordinarily ridden. The Pugsley continues to be my favored bike, but not specifically for its prowess in the snow. We haven't really had much snowfall this winter. Sure, an inch or two fell today, and there was a bit leftover from last week still hiding in the shadows, but it has unfortunately been a very dry season.
This evidence supports a hypothesis suggesting that the acquisition of a bike for which riding in snow is a primary objective, may be associated with paucity of snowfall in geographic proximity. Similar evidence was independently observed in Spokane last year. In any case, Scout and I have been enjoying whatever snow is made available to us, and will continue to do so. Here's hoping for more of the white stuff, perhaps even a big dump like last year.
