Well, I made my 2,000 miles of biking goal before the weather turned really nasty. In fact, yesterday I had one of the best rides ever--it was twilight, and very still, and I felt like I was sort of floating along instead of actually pedaling.
But tonight is the monthly Critical Mass ride, which I intended to do. Except it looks like it's going to be chilly and rainy. And I'm not sure I'm so dedicated to biking that I'm willing to go out in the dark AND the cold *AND* the rain.
Maybe two out of three.
It does make me extra glad that I finished my pledged miles, though, because I don't think I'm going to be one of those cyclists who keeps going despite of snow and ice and such. There's simply nothing fun about riding in those conditions, and at that point the control of drivers starts to seriously scare me.
Still, I can hope for another mild winter and that biking season is nice and long.
