Spring (season)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


Spring is one of the four conventional temperate seasons, following winter and preceding summer. There are various technical definitions of spring, but local usage of the term varies according to local climate, cultures and customs. When it is spring in the Northern Hemisphere, it is autumn in the Southern Hemisphere and vice versa. At the spring (or vernal) equinox, days and nights are approximately twelve hours long, with day length increasing and night length decreasing as the season progresses.

Spring and "springtime" refer to the season, and also to ideas of rebirth, rejuvenation, renewal, resurrection and regrowth. Subtropical and tropical areas have climates better described in terms of other seasons, e.g. dry or wet, monsoonal or cyclonic. Cultures may have local names for seasons which have little equivalence to the terms originating in Europe.


Rejuvenation is an aspect of Spring we all are looking forward to.  There are many ways to feel rejuvenated such as riding, flowers, riding, sun, riding, NO SHOVELING SNOW and finally, riding!


This is a season we can’t wait for.  Spring is a time to search Wing World and other magazines for new boots, gloves (Kris Andre) jackets or some new tires for the upcoming riding season.  Speaking of riding season, have you heard about the Wing Riding Wisconsin game?  I think if each Chapter and their Members participate and spread the word about the fun they are having, we all benefit.  We may learn of a new destination or a new route to get to an old destination.  As long as we’re riding, who cares?!?


Winter was not a total loss.  We were able to bring on board 2 new Instructors (Jan Williams and Tina Gebhard) for Medic First Aid/CPR.  We want to thank them for stepping up to help keep our Members in good standing with the Levels programs and generally keeping us safer as we go about riding.  Thanks, Tina for being willing to help John Sweeney Jr (District Ride Educator) as the District Medic First Aid Coordinator!  With this team’s help, we were able to hold several classes for MFA/CPR during our winter.  Thanks to all the Members who were able to attend these classes.


Check the District calendar for rides, rallies and events being held by Chapters and even activities in other Districts.  Who knows who you might see at one of these events?  Remember, they all are looking for a destination to ride to also!
