Any day with Biking...

Any day with biking in it is a good day.

This afternoon I handled my drops with bare skin for the first time in months. The weather was so warm that I shod the tight leather gloves I wear as hand-shields from cold Boston winds. I was a little surprised at the emotions the contact triggered. The foam-rubber wrapping over steel presents a pretty firm grip, though with a little give, and, when combined with the hugely comfortable drop-shape Jamis has created ... made me feel like I was holding hands with an old friend after much time apart. The sunset made the day's riding end even sweeter. I never thought I'd say it, but hurrah for daylight savings and huzzah for spring.
