simply wouldn't consider getting on a bike for one minute in today's snowy weather.

But why? I ask earnestly, not rhetorically.

This morning, I had to walk my bike half a block from my sidest-of-side streets to Newton Ave (a mere side street), but then I was able to bike along Newton, King and Sterling and they were fine: the salt and traffic had left them merely wet and a bit slushy by 9:00 am. And on Longwood, Aberdeen, Dundurn and King West while running errands at lunch I had to deal with nothing worse than a bit of spray.

Which is typical of a snowy winter day unless it's coming down heavily.

And I should note that the only special equipment required for biking today was a pair of light sunglasses, to keep the snow from driving into my eyes. Otherwise, just normal clothes: jeans, shirt, tie, sport coat, overcoat, leather gloves.
