Cyclists: Mike and Tony

Last week winter arrived in Victoria.  Some parts of the city got 56 cm of snow.  It wasn't too bad in our part of town but enough to put paid to a bike ride.  Tony was over for dinner the night before and we pondered a Sunday ride.  I thought the forecast was a little grim when I got up the next day and was preparred to bail.  But Tony made an offer I didn't refuse so I met him on the new blue bridge at 1:00.  Most of the snow had melted but it was only around 5c in the afternoon but with little wind.  I added another layer and an ear band and was perfectly comfortable.  The E & N had some water on it it places and a little leftover snow in other places.  But nothing to worry about.  A short and pleasant ride.
