Our weather station said the outside temperature was zero. Looking out the front door window, I could see a sciff of snow that resembled a dusting of icing sugar on a bundt cake. I had decided to ride my new-to-me 20" Raleigh even though it doesn't have studded tires. I was gambling that the new tires with their thick treads that I had bought from the Raving Bike Fiend would cut through any ice/snow.
The pannier rack on the Raleigh is too short to mount regular panniers on the rear so I "improvised" by putting an Axiom top mounted bag on the rack first. A kind lady from the library had given me two small saddlebags which I cleverly mounted on top of the Axiom bag.
