I admit...

... I didn't bike to work this morning.

60km/h winds and driving snow? And beleaguered snow clearance workers? And half the drivers out there having been taken by surprise (again) without snow tires?

Yes, I took the bus.

There are more storm photos here, at the Ottawa Citizen site.


  1. I think I'm going to give it a go this afternoon. I only have to go from Hintonburg to the Umi Cafe in Centretown. I'm still scared to drive (yes, caught sans snow tires) and bussing that short distance would just be... expensive! As my friend and I were saying last night, biking isn't bad if you're not in a rush... right?

  2. Yeah, that shouldn't be too bad. I'd stay off Somerset for as long as I could though. ;-) I think I'm going to give it a shot tomorrow; too much slush this morning. Still trying to figure out the route though... I don't relish the idea of trying to bike down Riverside Drive, which is the most direct and straighforward path from Hurdman to work. So I'm going to sit down with and see what else I can do. . .
