smart? Not sure about that. originally, I had planned to wait until this spring, but impatience got the better of me…
My sweetie and I are planning to build a garden shed this year so that we can move stuff out of the garage to store my bike more easiliy next year. The summer isn’t a problem, but once we try to fit grill, table, chairs, and potted plants in for the winter, well- you can imagine.
Our winter keeps getting pushed out cold front by cold front too. A couple days after my first ride of spring, we had another set of flurries. Truth be told, the weather was fine enough for riding in early March if your driveway was clear- and I’ve been seeing bikes on the road for two months now. I’m just not confident enough (or perhaps not stupid enough) to have tried to pull my bike out that early.
Hope that you are able to get out and enjoy your new bike soon!
