it was super to ride to work today and Monday on a dry street, free of ice or snow, on stud-free tires. wasn't so super to ride in all the mud and debris closer to the curb. but it's getting better and was super great to fly down the hill and spin around the corners and make it to work on time instead of a few minutes late.
(there was a teacher/coach at high school many years ago who's favorite word was super. wasn't one of my favorite teachs back then, but for some reason i'm channeling him today. amazing what things stick with you.)
rode home up Post Street for the second time in a row. a 36 low gear in back is also super, didn't have to resort to it but it's nice to have some extra gears. love the Vaya.
