I thought it would be helpful to refresh my call for feedback on what the riding conditions are like throughout the Portland metro area this morning.
I’m still undecided if I’ll ride down to the Central Eastside today (from North Portland) because I don’t want to get caught if/when things ice over.
To kick things off, here’s a comment from “shawn” that came in a few minutes ago:
I’d have to say that today’s ride in was the worst one yet this week. Everything icy with a (very) thin coating of new powder from this morning’s snow meant my rear wheel slid a few times. Plus it was a difficult start from a couple intersections as the rear wheel couldn’t get traction to push forward.
And after several days of courteous drivers, this morn I had my first jerkface, who startled me when she beeped at me. Yeah, so what if I was “taking up the road”? It was one block, on a very narrow, very not-major side street. Get over yourself, lady.
What’s it like out there today?
