Amen brother, I'm in the same boat, only low 50s, but to me at this point, seems like mid 70s!

ditto. i'm at school. to make things worse, the prof. just emailed the class to say that we are having class at an outdoor bar next to campus. (he is also opening a tab). while this sounds good, it only further aggravates my desire to be riding. kinda like being really hungry and seeing a mountain of pesto pasta vs. being really hungry and seeing a gumball machine. (this analgoy makes no sense)

have hope. sunset, at least in southern ohio, isn't until 7:30.

I thought my riding season would be in full swing by now as I started a work project in Austin in February and I'd avoid the last month or so of cold temps in Denver. But since moving furniture (and falling on the ice about 5x this winter) my back is jacked all over the place. I can barely walk for more than 5 minutes, literally.

To make matters more frustrating when I'm back in Denver from Friday-Sunday the temps have been in the low to mid 60's AND I STILL CAN'T RIDE!

It's 75 degrees here in coastal NC.
