Was going to go out mid-afternoon, but it was snowing hard enough to defeat my intentions (though not apparently snowing hard enough to actually accumulate on pavement). But then it stopped snowing, and there was still plenty of daylight, so off I went. Started snowing again pretty soon thereafter, but at that point it didn't matter, I was out the door.
35F, SW 5-10. Actually the snow made it nice, gave the sense of really being out in the elements, when in fact it was pretty benign. But the time went quickly, and what cars there were gave me more space than ever, figuring I guess that that this biker must be quite nuts.
Perhaps they are right....
New chain. Got 1,825 miles on the first one, 1,920 on the second. Also got the brakes fixed. I think the rear brake was OK, but the front one had some air in the line and was only a little bit better than worthless. Working fine now.
