An Ode to Snow On the Roads

Trudging through the snow
On a wobbly, wobbly bike
Down the streets I go
Cursing all the way
Swirls of snow are slung
Amping up my fright
Oh What fun a long commute
Through the misty foggy blight

Oh, falling snow, falling snow
Cursing all the way
Oh, what fun it is to ride
My death-wish steed today


Paradoxically, the snow in my garden pleases me very much indeed. I think I am simply bitter that I live within walking distance to work and therefore had no excuse to stay home today (unlike half my office, humph) drinking hot chocolate in bed and drying the cats on their periodic and manic runs into the house from the garden.

Similarly, what kind of an idiot rides their bike through a blizzard? is also very much, a fair enough question. Fitness may indeed be the death of me.

I was asking myself the same question as I cycled/flew in the face of a snow storm on my way home from work at 8am this morning, and again at 6pm (apparently I don't catch on fast)

yay, another bike lunatic! Pleased to hear you didn't get killed either.

More of the same tomorrow?

Oh yes indeed, unless there is ice. I am quite attached to my unbroken bones.
