- Family conflicts
- Mechanical problems (rare since I own 3 bikes)
- Tornado warnings (I've actually ridden through several without knowing)
- Lightning (ditto)
It was plenty cold when I left home. I had broken out my holey sweater and my booties to keep me comfortable. I was dressed perfectly. No discomfort whatsoever.
|The holey sweater has lots of holes but they are hard to see. It's at least 10 years old and made of soft wool.|

Bike riders who encountered this icy stretch of trail ride around it on the grass. This has already started to create quite a mess. Soon mud will be added to the icy mix. Too bad the Park Service doesn't sand and salt the trail as it does the Parkway just up the hill to the right. Little Nellie gets no respect, no respect at all.

Winter. Soon the trail will be covered in ice and snow and I'll be riding in my basement. So it goes.
