So tired of the trainer as well as the snow and cold of Chicago. Today was different...I'm in LA for business and rented a rode bike. I rode along the beach from Marina Del Rey to Palos Verdes. It was 80+ degrees and Sunny. Ya got love this weather. I was surprised to find that it is tough to find a place that rents road bikes. I rode a steel Dawes with shifters on the top tube. It was a 61cm and I ride a 56. The gearing was off due to a non-matching cassett BUT it was warm and great to be outside.
