Around here, most side streets and driveways are still blind entrances between tall snowbanks. Cars and bloated SUVs poke their noses into the narrowed travel way as drivers try to see around the obstruction. Bicycling isn't a really good idea. To get into drivers' eye line from side streets a cyclist would have to ride in the middle of the road. There's a time for that, but conditions now would call for a lot of it.
Meanwhile, the snow is still deep and cross-country ski trails are groomed. Who knows when we'll see snow cover like this again? Can't just let it melt away. Mix Nordic with some indoor riding to condition the sitting parts and start to shape the body to pedaling again. I'll hit the road with too much arm and shoulder mass, but sometimes it's like that.
