Here in northern New Jersey we got about 36 inches of snow over the past two weeks. But today it got to 50-degrees F., and I have been dying to get the bike out (I was getting out about once a week before January). So I got it out today (thank goodness for trickle chargers), and not wanting to cross over any streets with melting snow laced with salt (for melting the ice)... I couldn't get out of my neighborhood! Very frustrating fifteen minute ride. Didn't even get it out of 2nd gear. But... a day on the bike beats all.
