Signs of Spring in Webster, Minnesota:
The snow, what little we had this winter, is pretty much gone
My kids have been playing outside, winter jackets forgotten
The temperature has been in the 60s and looks to stay there
The fields are muddy - and so is Rocket the dog when he comes inside from our hikes
People are out flying where I live at SkyHarbor Airpark (as in people are flying airplanes. I haven't seen any flying people - at least not yet)
I visited two bike shops in two days (Valley Bike & Ski and Milltown Cycles)
Owen and I biked two days in a row!!
I got new bar tape on my road bike!!
the work Ben and Curtis are doing to the shop. The handlebar tape on my bike was white and pretty dirty so I decided, with a little encouragement from Ben and Owen, to put bright new turquoise bar tape on my Giant Avail road bike.
Turquoise is my favorite color - it reminds me of spring and all things good. And I can't think of a much nicer way to start out spring and the bicycling season than with pretty new turquoise bar tape :)
Thanks, Ben, for putting the new tape on my bike for me.
