You never know what you’re gonna get when the spring thaw begins. In winter you know what you’re going to get: cold, snow and ice. The new season, however, brings a whole new set of hazards that can bring harm to you.
Yesterday was a beautiful day for a bike ride, and I was able to find quite a few hazards for your enjoyment.
And a couple of very warm days will produce thin ice on lakes, rivers and puddles so cyclists must take extra care. As you will see in the next two videos, I am highly skilled in dealing with such thin ice.
Hi. My name is Greg and I ride my bike a lot. That is to say, I ride my bike almost every day. I go on long rides and short rides. Sunny rides, cloudy rides, and rainy rides. I like commuting, errand-running, day-tripping, overnighting, and touring on my bike. I ride on city streets, highways, gravel, single track, and snow with equal enthusiasm. Sometimes I ride fast and sometimes I ride slow. I try to keep my feet on the pedals at stop lights and I do not dismount when I hop up on a curb. I have a roadie bike, a mountain bike and a touring bike. I try to accept any challenge a bike ride can throw at me without complaint. But I don't like bugs.
