Depending on where you live, you’re either in the depths of winter’s maelstrom, or you’ve been enjoying a mild, temperate permanent fall with spring right around the corner. Few images inspire the urge to end hibernation like those of people on their bikes. Even for all-weather, year-round riders, spring is that magical time where ridership increases, rain pants disappear, and the bike life takes on a normalcy many yearn for year round.
The Pacific Northwest has enjoyed one of the mildest winters many here can recall. Only a few days dipped below freezing, along with some pretty wicked windstorms. There’s been little overcast, much fog, and a wealth of sunshine. Perfect riding weather.
It’s been ages since Rebel Metropolis put together a collection of bikey images from Tumblr, likely proof of this great weather failing to induce the usual hermiting instinct most winters do. Like previous photo sets displayed here, all images link to their source. Hopefully browsing the city cycling scenes below inspires you to ride just a tiny bit more, or begin this year a wee bit earlier than usual.
