Fuzzy Bunny Slippers

Okay that title will have to just keep you guessing for a minute....

Slept in this morning and didn't get started riding to work until after the sun was up. But what a nice morning to ride in. Temps right around 60 deg F, no wind. Warm enough to wear my shorts and jersey, and no winter or insulated clothes of any kind!! Hello Spring, and welcome. We've been looking for you.

Got a text mid morning from Bill Cunningham suggesting we connect for the ride home. We both arrived 5 min early for the rendezvous on Andover Rd and enjoyed a brisk pace home, even picked up a drafter who followed for a few miles and introduced himself at a stoplight. It is my worst social handicap that I can't remember names well, we'll just call him Drafter.

Bill and I made a date to brave the showers tomorrow and meet at the Rusty Bridge at 6 am for the ride to work. Peer pressure is a great way to get on the bike when it would otherwise be too easy to skip it.

All was well until I'd been home and in the house about 5 min. Then quite suddenly the pollen hit me. My eyes started burning I wanted to claw them out. A shower took care of that. Now it's officially time to go on the Clariton.

Oh the title of this post.... Saw this goofy kid walking on The B&A trail just before I got off at Jones Station to return home. Check out his footwear...
