We’ll look at the forecast religiously just hoping for that little glimpse of sunshine. That one-day every week or two when the skies open and the roads and trails invite us to partake in more than a quick ride. In the fall, winter and early spring of 2016/17 those days were few and far between. As a matter of fact, between October 17, 2016 and April 1, 2017 Seattle had 4 days of sunshine. 4 DAYS! We also set the record for the longest period of time for the temperature to reach 60 degrees. Ugh.
I can finally say (knock on wood), that spring is here. The cherry blossoms are out, there is still a little rain dripping in and out of the Doppler, but it feels like we’ve actually reached the end of our longest, coldest and darkest winter.
It’s time to ride!
