Spring on the way... maybe?

Well I'm still watching those videos, but I figured I'd make a quick post about the coming spring. Yea, I know... I'm just being hopeful at this point. But I know it's on the way. I had the pleasure of riding to work twice this last week, not having to wear a full jacket and pants. Man did I miss that feeling. Being able to move freely, not getting at all clammy, being able to brake and shift without bulky gloves on. Man it's nice. (Except for that whole day of hard pellet snow flurries, stinging your face. Where did that come from?) Anyway, I'm not the only one that's been noticing. I've seen some other commuters out there, that I haven't normally seen. So it's that time of year, when people are getting the itch, needing to get some outside time.

And it is on that note, that I thought it would be fitting to post a link to this video. I'm sure it's made the rounds already, but I thought they did a pretty good job of showing how it can be easy to miss noticing a cyclist, while driving in a bunch of traffic. I know I'm probably preaching to the choir here, but pass it on to your non cyclist friends/family. And as the weather gets warmer, and there's more of us out there, I wouldn't mind it if drivers were looking out.

I'm not sure why watching a Rick Astley video is a punishment. Clearly the man has perfected dance, we all have a lot to learn. Don't believe me? Try doing his dance, it will baffle you how hard it is!

HA HA HA HA... oh man. Thanks guys! I definitely needed that. And yea, I'm totally up for a ride. Just let me know when and where.

And yea, I agree Marc. He's totally perfected the white guy dance. I just can't do it like he does.
