Before and after what?
The after will be self explanatory, if the BEFORE is an empty bike rack on a cold day in march the AFTER might well be........................?
sometime in August??
The fair weather riders are back on the road. More than last year perhaps?
It was a brutal winter and people are itching to get out.
I'm noticing it on the Metra, too. I miss not having to shoe-horn my bike on a mess of poorly arranged bikes.
