I've been enjoying my commutes so far this winter. That ended on Friday night.

I live in a very diverse neighborhood, with everything from stately victorian houses and mansions to housing projects within a 3 block radius. This means, essentially, that I travel through what many consider to be 'the hood' on a daily basis.

Friday I worked a double shift of 14 hours and began my ride home as usual. We have been getting some foul weather around here lately with our first signifcant snowfalls, and I have been very pleased with my first season on studded tires. I got two friendly honks early on during my ride home starting at 10pm.
