|Cheery Sight, N. Main Street, Providence|
I had the joy of handling the bicycle on slushy streets that had been plowed or driven before I transited them, though this pleasure can pale quickly after a few blocks as the hands tire from keeping the wheels under me and the body warms.
Along the way, I also had the exhilaration of being not entirely under control as the bike slid faster than the wheels were turning on a well traveled road and somewhat cleared road resulting in a slippery surface. It was almost skiing, while balancing on two small points with naught but balance and precession to keep upright.

And while the weather had warmed, and the rain was falling steadily, even the trip home was not disheartening. Arriving home mostly dry, thoroughly pleased to have completed a new challenge in choosing not to use a car on a daily basis, and preferring the bicycle to transit.
