Rode the Forks of the Credit today

Mostly because I'm touched in the head. Figured I'd just ride up Mississauga Rd to see how things were. Problem was the temperature which while cool in Mississauga was downright frigid by the time I got to Beamsville. Even with overgloves and winter gauntlets, my hands were pretty damn cold.

Once I got through the town and onto the road proper, I realized I had two problems. One, the road was really wet and two it was in deep shadow, so that water was freezing to the road surface. Lucky for me, it wasn't all the way there yet. I was able to keep to the high side of the camber and stick to the higher drier part of the road surface. I took it nice and easy until I got to the sunnier part of the road.

So, if you're going up Mississauga rd. You've got to take a detour into Beamsville, which isn't too bad as far as roads go but I'm going to give it a few more weeks before tackling the road again.

On the positive side... Absolutely no traffic.

On the negative side, a cager and his entire family in a Honda sedan decided it was cool to pass me in the middle of a town on a double yellow line SPLITTING MY LANE because I was doing the speed limit.

At least the road rage kept me warm till Beamsville.
