I'm telling myself that I shouldn't feel bad about driving to work. Chris Chan, one of the most dedicated year - round riders I know said on the internet that the weather was so bad that he took a bus - which for him is a rare occasion. As well I had read an excellent blog entitled "The Most Difficult Thing About Winter Cycling" on "Breaking Chains and Taking Lanes" one of my favourite cycling blogs which gave me pause for thought.
On Sunday, I was already dressed in my overalls and ready to volunteer at "BikeWorks", the Commuter Society's bike repair shop when I stepped outside to check on the weather to decide if it would be worth opening the shop in the afternoon. I needn't have worried. When I checked their website, there was an announcement that the shop would be closed due to the weather. It was expected that no one would be out in the deep snow riding let alone needing repairs at "BikeWorks".
So I sit here at my computer admiring those stalwart cyclists who brave every type of weather and placate myself with daydreams of finer cycling weather.
