Look Out for the Early Riders in Quinte

It would seem that the weather is finally getting spring-like enough in the Quinte area for enthusiasts to break out their bicycles, mopeds and motorcycles. This is always a bit of a nerve-wracking time as drivers of cars aren't used to the presence of riders yet, and sometimes forget to check twice before changing lanes. The weather can also be a bit of a wild card, as it might be tempting to bring a bike to work only to find that it has snowed during an eight hour shift, and that the ride home won't be much fun.

Motorists of both the two and four wheel variety should take a bit of extra care this time of the year, after all, the life you save could very well be mine. I don't think it would be much fun lying in a cold puddle on the side of a road with some broken bones waiting for the ambulance to arrive. I'd rather be doing something else.

Malcolm - That would be a shock to ride to work in clear weather, only to find a heap of snow at the end of the day.  Best to wait until Spring is firmly ensconced in the East!  It's 18 degrees and sunny today... must get in the garden and tend to the crocuses... sorry, couldn't resist!
