Mel wanted skis, so we went out to Bikeway Source to see Dr. Li. She wound up with a nice "first year high school racer" setup, on a Pilot setup because a) she has tiny feet and those were the boots that fit best and b) he was willing to let it go for way cheaper. If she gets into racing (she says she won't but maybe I'll take her to World Championships some day and see) maybe she'll upgrade but for now pilots are fine.
Anyway, I needed to go to my house to get my rollerskis and was going to meet her there. 60˚ and cloudy, not a bad day to ski! But how to get to the Bikeway, since I didn't really want to ski through Cambridge streets? Drive and have to get my car later? Ride a bike share? Oh, wait, the Red Line! Train in 7 minutes. So I skied down and took the Red Line, like in the old days!
It was fine, a dozen or so on my car and most got off at Harvard. And then I got off at Alewife and skied out. Lots of DPing through Stroller Slalom and out through Arlington, then some nice skiing on up to Bedford. One point where a dinkus on a bike yelled at a car making a U-turn in Arlington, which I would have been pissed about except we were crossing against the light and the driver wasn't driving at all dangerously. Anyway, a lovely ski, but I want to real ski.
