When a good day suddenly appears, I’m apt to find myself on a ride around the big lake. Like today, for example. Snow in the woods, bare roads, a high near 70 degrees and sunny.
I recently acquired a new Sedici three-season armored jacket for a closeout price of $138 and I wanted to try it out.
It has zip-out wind and thermal layers. I had them both in. I was too warm when stopped, but it was okay moving. In several pockets of snow and shade, the jacket was just right.
I should have removed the thermal layer when I got overheated but I was too preoccupied (lazy).
The bob houses have retreated off the spring ice after curing several fishermen of their post Christmas blues. See December photo.
The bike ran well as always, traffic was sparse, things to see, spring in the air. And I like the jacket a lot. It was a good ride.
