Getting ahead of yourself

To all the commuters these days (in Madison, WI) who are rocking the studded tires: you’re getting ahead of yourself.  Here’s why:

  1. There’s no snow on the ground.
  2. There’s no ice on the ground either.
  3. Just because it’s legal now, doesn’t mean that you have to.

I know you’re excited about the coming of winter. Aren’t we all? But, it’s not going to snow for a while yet (at least a week, at this writing) and when it does, you probably won’t need the studs right away.

Oh, and while I’ve got your attention: Do the rest of us a favor and set your extremely bright front LED lights to steady instead of flicker–and while you’re at it, angle them down a bit so that they don’t shine in the eyes of oncoming cyclists.

That is all.
