Thawing

It’s still a bit soon to pack away my winter woolies, but the snow in this week-old pic is history.

And the Hudson is no longer covered with ice. Woohooooo!

Monty and I are back to our regular daily commute, enjoying blue skies

and cycling home in setting sunlight instead of darkness.

Let the riding season begin! I registered for the Tour de Staten Island, a part of NYC I don’t know well. Last fall’s Tour de Bronx was such fun that I want to do all the borough-specific rides this year, as well as the 5 Boro and the Century.

It’s a good incentive to get in shape. I skipped way too many Bar Method classes over the winter; the workout complements cycling, keeping my leg muscles strong enough to protect my troublesome knees. Time to get back to it.

Several friends in the fun Brompton NYC group on Facebook use Strava to track their rides. I’m going to try it too.

I’ll leave you with my favorite sign of spring,  painted by my dear brother-in-all-but-blood Dan Dutton.
