Winter Cycling Dreams

29 11 2010

Last night, I had a dream that all the snow melted and I didn’t need the studded tires on any of my bikes. I could feel warmth from the sun, I didn’t have to bundle up, and my only concerns were the puddles of melted ice everywhere, and which of my summer bikes I should bring out of storage.

Fall seems like a distant memory.

Alas, I awoke to a winter cycling season that has barely started and a frozen white world with warmth only from my blankets and snuggly kitties. I guess it was still better than the dream I had last week where I was riding through deep snow in the bush to escape the zombie apocalypse. Come to think of it, I could really go for some fun off-road snow biking. Minus the zombies, of course.

I especially appreciate your dreamlike photo – I’ve tried to replicate dream images in waking life without much success – but you got it right!

Thank you so much! Of course, that wasn’t what I was thinking of at all when I took this photo a couple of months ago (I was actually just waiting for a sandwich and noticed the reflections while watching my bike), and I intended to post it at least a couple of different times before in different contexts, though I never quite worked it in.

Honestly, though, this photo mainly makes me crave Vietnamese shredded tofu subs. mmmm…Nhon Hoa

Cool picture!

Off roading it in the snow sounds like fun. It’s supposed to snow a few inches in Chicago tonight and I plan to get up early tomorrow and head to the lakefront.

I would love to ride in the snow. Hopefully when I move to North Ga. I will get to try it. Not much snow here in Florida.
