The flat streets of Chicago do. I forgot to whip out the phone and take a photo of the hills and the surface, but the snowy dirt roads were a blissful surface on the cross bike. I’m really going to have to work to justify to myself the purchase of a road bike.
The hills killed me, though. I welcome the challenge, but it also made me feel slow and unprepared for my first road season.
I hope everybody is getting out and riding…now that the holidays are over, the toughest days are yet to come….the dead of winter.
