Cold, Wind and No Path
Lots of comments at work lately, like too cold for ya to ride? Fair weather commuter huh?
A good chunk of my ride is on a 66 year old MUP. It could be one of the originals and is located at the Paul Dever School. The school was for the severly handicaped, and MUPs were necessary for obvious reasons. The problem is that the roads and MUP are not maintained. Everything is a sheet of ice after last weeks snow, thaw, deep freeze.
The lack of roadway is the reason I'm not bike commuting, but with the single digit temperatures and wind chill dropping that into negative numbers, I'm really not missing it that much.
