cycling with snow on the ground

An excellent ride in the cold

Winter riding is difficult to get excited about. NOt only is it difficult to work up enthusiasm for an outside activity when thetemperature is cold enough for snow, but drivers in general seem to think cycling is illegal in the winter. They have even less patience and understanding than they do during the cycling season. I know, shocking.

I was happy with my performance on this ride considering how long it has been.

nice cool ride

It has been cold lately, and I have been concentrating on other things besides keeping up my riding routine.
When I opened the basement door and stepped outside at 11am it was in the mid 50s, and I was pumped.

I took the basic route I usually took this year, but I kept it to0 exactly an hour. It was fantastic.
I found a small, brandless vice grip type channel lock tool. They are in good shape and work well. cool!

I am thrilled that Valley road has been paved. Its a wonderful road for riding, but the condition of the road has been terrible.
