April 1 | By Jesse Lindhorst
It’s the thaw and the start of cycling season and, even though snow is falling and people are cursing, “Nature is cruel! April Fools’ prank!,” this is the beginning of something so many have been waiting for—30 Days of Biking.
There is nothing more exhilarating than (for the non-winter warriors) to dust off the helmet, pump up the tires, and hop on the saddle for the first real ride. Weight from the grey winter days is shed from both shoulders. Lungs expand with the freshest air and the heart bursts with joy. Expressions flip from stagnant frowns to immeasurable smiles. How could there be anything better?
Bikers are now awake from hibernation, and they’re hungry for pavement, gravel, and mud.
So, let’s ride!
