Winter rides

There’s nothing like a sunny day to make you passionate about cycling. It is February, but it has been hovering between +3 to +8. The daylight hours are lengthening and we are receiving brilliant sunshine during the day.
From our basement suite windows you can’t always tell what kind of day it will be. As gray light falls through the windows it would be easy to stick inside on the computer or reading a book. Thankfully cycling draws me outside into the weather eachday. Riding along the Shuswap lake, the sun emerges and sparkles off the water. The grass along the lake is greening while the hills surrounding us are powdered with fresh white snow. It is amazing and something best appreciated from the seat of a bike.
