That’s gonna leave a mark.
The good news is the light snow stopped just before I got on my bike. The bad news is that it was sunny and 26 degrees. The snow fell, melted somewhat then froze.
Several parts of my route were as icy as the stare Lance Armstrong is going to get if he ever has a sit-down with the Postmaster General.
At one point on the Cedar Lake Regional Trail there’s a small dogleg to cross some train tracks. It was one part of the trail that wasn’t covered by light snow so it didn’t look slippery. I navigated the two quick turns too fast. That’s when I learned the dogleg was covered in clear ice.
I must have looked like Bambi on ice. A tube of Carmex in my pocket tried it’s best to break my fall. Now I am going to have a Carmex-sized bruise on my hip. Right on top of the bruise that’s the size of my entire hip.
