This week was the first safe week for my commute to the college. The route has steep hills, blind curves, areas that get wind blown snow across the road, and high speed limits. These factors combined make it unsafe to ride when there is snow on the roads or ice. With studded tires, I am not worried about my ability to stay upright. I am more afraid of drivers not knowing what to do if they suddenly come upon a bike in wintery weather, and causing an accident.

The route goes over a ridge that is high enough that the weather is different up top than down at my place or down at the college. This week was the first week the top of the ridge was safe to ride.

Monday was too cold for my cabal gear (26 F and 10mph winds), so I broke out my Team Delphine winter kit (what I wore in Montana in winter). Today was in the 40's so the long sleeved jersey over short sleeved over t-shirt. On the legs I had on my cabal knickers and a pair of fun knee socks. My usual SPD 'cross/mtb shoes filled out the kit.

My students think I am crazy.

Today while on a photo walk in the snow, I met my near neighbor, Josh. Josh expressed joy at seeing someone taking photos in Brooktondale and noted that he never saw many photos tagged as being from there. Here is a shot of a Brooktondale icon: Brookton's Market - the place to be in the village for great food, to grab a few groceries (particularly local ones), or to hang out with your neighbors.
