The Snow Is Melting

020709 Loop

A 50 degree day if February gives me hope winter’s end is near. Wanting to bask in the warmth I left later than usual.


Put together a nearly 30 mile loop which took me east of town back to Sycamore. This is my favorite part of Dekalb County to ride. There was plenty of water on the road surface from the snowmelt.  This got me wondering why full length fenders are not standard, I have to order those Bike Hugger flaps. Barber Greene Rd. is on the route. A road I do not recommend on week days due to asphalt haulers and texting locals taking a shortcut. Though on this Saturday traffic was light.

On the return parked it at Shawn’s for a sandwich and an espresso.
