Lots of gray skies, wind, cold, snow, and blowing snow in Salem the past couple weeks, and I have been recovering from a bout of flu (I think) and just plain lazy, so I haven’t been out on bike much. But, Saturday afternoon the temperature climbed into the low 20s(F) and there was some blue sky early in the afternoon. I got the bike out with the hope of getting a picture of my bike and a cloud. Here’s what I got, my bike, the town sign at the NE corner of town on Richard Ave (or 253rd Street). As you can see, a gray sky again (cloud?):
Here’s a link to a video I took while riding Saturday. I’m heading north on Douglas St on the west end of town. There’s a 15-20 MPH NW wind blowing snow across the road, but this doesn’t show up in the video. I got some clouds, though.
At the beginning of the video, I’m trying to get my glove back on after starting the video. And, at the end, where it looks like I’m crashing, I’m just putting the phone in my coat pocket. A car was coming up behind me and I wanted to get both hands on the handlebars again before the car came by me.
Ride stats: around 5 miles, about 35 minutes.
