The hardships of the last week made themselves clear when Boban's bike decided to give him a surprise nap time in front of some Italian tourists. Ridiculing him for riding on 23c wheels John's fully winterized All City didn't really save him when he was laid out immediately after. We stood around for a while and watched other cyclists hitting the treacherous spot and built some bike installations but after an hour outside we were still only 6 km in so we decide to bite the bullet and do another 10 km on a bigger plowed road. But as usual, not without problem. Our playtime in the snow had frozen Boban's cleats. After some stomping and cursing we were on our way.
