Fresh Powder on the Surly Wednesday!
A fresh 15cm of snow made for a memorable commute this afternoon! ❄️🙌😊
We recently finished setting Stephanie’s @surlybikes Wednesday up with studded 2.8” tires from @terrenetires and new Flat 65 fenders from @simworksusa.
The project came together just in time, as this week’s below-freezing temperatures made for plenty of ice and snow on our commutes.
Today started off dry and cold with a solid crew at @coffeeoutsideyvr over the bridge at Leeside. The snow started while we were hanging out there and continued all day. By quitting time, the roads were a mess.
With traffic so bad, and driving feeling unsafe with so many unprepared cars and people out there, we agreed that this was definitely biking weather - but that we’re a very small majority that feels this way.
We opted to take the long way home, through the woods and plenty of untouched powder, not concerned about time and smiling all the way. It’s nice to be self-sufficient at times like these!
