Spring Time Dreams

Written by Boston Biker on Feb 11

I closed my eyes for a moment just now and was overcome by the feeling you get when you ride your bike at high speed through a warm summer night. That perfect wind through your hair feeling, that lighter than air nothing can stop you feeling, that cricket filled placid feeling. The kind of night that feels alive with possibility, bikes and adventure, sitting on the docks near the river, hill climbs and night races, of secret spots and hide and seek.

I can’t wait for that first nice summer night, I am going to ride every mile of Boston’s streets to celebrate the end to the cold weather.

I think I can only handle winter until Jan 31st, the month of February always destroys my love of snow and chill air. Every year as soon as March rolls around I start to feel better. How do the rest of you deal with the long dark winters?

    Go on a vacation to Georgia in late February or early March – get a taste of the good stuff, and if you road trip it back, you see that spring is creeping up to DC and it can’t be too long till it gets here!

    I miss spring break frisbee tournaments!

    I hike in the Fells or go skiing or do something with the snow that is non adversarial. I also hate the humidity of deep summer and will personally prefer an extra day of crisp cold air now if it’s one less day of stanky sweatiness.

    I continue biking as if it was 75 degrees plus, except that I am wearing 6 layers. :-P

    Take a few days riding the T- That will re-ignite your love affair with the bike in a hurry!

    It’s already easing up. If you were out today you’d be feeling better already. Check out the I bike to work blog for my low point…
