One could question my sanity for pedaling to my first appointment this morning. But by the time I decided to set out, it was too late to change my mind. I was at A and I needed to get to B.
Not many people, besides myself and delivery cyclists (who have no choice) would even consider braving road conditions like this- no separated infrastructure, unplowed roads with more snow rapidly accumulating and having to mix with large trucks.
Thankfully, part of my commute takes me through Central Park. The roads weren’t plowed yet but it wasn’t too bad if you could find your path in virgin snow.
People on bicycles were far and few between, but I wasn’t alone. (I passed three other cyclists total during my round trip.)
Though skis might have been a better option.
