I decided on June 8, 2015 that making excuses not to ride was too easy and told myself to ride every day. As winter approached, a voice in my head kept nagging me that "a day will come when the heart will fail". Each day it seemed cold or wet, I owed to the week before to continue the streak. I became committed to the ride and even more so to myself. After the day I rode with my left hand protecting my face from sleet, I realized I was going to ride all winter. Then I searched "riding bike every day" and this little project popped up. I think of riding in April as a celebration of surviving the winter.
