frozen ice slush. Today it's nearly 40 F. It was a wet ride to work.
I did get majorly doused by a car blasting through a mega puddle (of course the car had "bicycle" license plates), but otherwise, my front mud flap (Brits: in the US, a "mud flap" is the thing that attaches to the bottom of a fender, which of course, is called a mud guard -- for tyres -- over there) saved the day.
Thanks to Jan for pointing out the auto gasket rubber to use for flaps. And to Patrick, of Scoop fame, for picking up a stack of said rubber gaskets last spring.
Good counsel. Good friends. What more does a guy need?
