Crazy spring in Québec this year! Wish I would have stayed in VA! Oh well, summer will come…
By 11:00 on Monday, although the sun was shining, it was just about 7°C (low forties). Time for me to jump in a very hot shower to warm up my muscles, before putting on my winter gear and facing the cold. Oh yeah, thermal jacket, ski socks, booties. Even gloves! (I never wear gloves when I ride unless it’s very cold. I know, not very smart for a massage therapist but I just cannot stand gloves on my handlebars!)
I took one of my favourite routes; rang 8. Smooth pavement, no cars, up and down. A quiet Monday, just the way I like it. Sharing the road with a few busy squirrels. When I turned left on Fleurant and started going up, I noticed the snow covering the grass. What? Snow on May 10th? Insane! Débile!
(First snow for my new Wilier!)
I ended loving my ride, convinced that I was the only cyclist out there facing the elements!
Tuesday, 5:30 am. Early, way too early to get up, especially on a day off! But I was sooo excited to ride my bike that I never went back to sleep. Unfortunately, it was even colder than the day before. Looking out the window, I could see frost on the ground. Oops, that wasn’t part of the plan!
So I had breakfast and coffee, spend some time onTwitter with the #coffeemates, had some more coffee and by 10:00, decided to get dressed and head out. Couldn’t wait any longer since I had an appointment in Ste-Agathe right after lunch. Again, short but great ride, just glad I was able to turn the legs for an hour. Riding my bike just warms up my heart!
(Lac Ouimet was gorgeous!)
By now, you must be thinking: what is Quick doing while she rides her bike?
Nap after nap, that black doggy sure can sleep!
Bye guys, enjoy your day!
