I had my first spill on Melo Velo yesterday. When I rode to meet Julia and Emily for coffee on Queen, I dutifully avoided the ice patches. I anxiously watched the snow fall as I sipped my tea. By the time I left, there was a thick pad of snow on my bike seat. I was so careful, I got my groceries in the market, I walked my bike for as long as my feet had feeling, then I hopped on and rode on the sidewalk. At Grace Street, i stopped at the corner. Then Vwoooomp. bike goes right, me left. Groceries everywhere.
I was fine. But now I know that I can't ride this bike in the snow. Sad. I think I will go ice skating tonight. I also want to go see: The Darkness at the Phoenix. Chris played me some of their video clips online this weekend. Wanna come?
