The season has started

Lord knows I don't subscribe to the idea of biking season. If the roads are anything but icy or snowy, the bike comes out, no matter how cold it is.
But this winter - I daren't say "past" yet - delivered a lot of icy and snowy, and in the past two months the Beast and I were lucky to drive a hundred kilometers.
There was no passing up the sun and 6° C today offered. We covered about 60 kilometers out to Einsiedeln and back, and afterward the Beast was relieved of a complete winter's dirt and salt.

The scaredy-cat stripes on the tire edges might as well be neon orange in these pictures, they show up so well. I can't wait for the snow to disappear and the roads to be dry again.
