Did ride today. In the snow.

...and the slush. I live less than 10 miles from Keith.

Down to Lilydale and did the fire roads to the Old Cedar Bridge.

Single speed Miyata natch.

We are driving though, to the Minnesota State Cyclocross Championships this afternoon and the Zac Dabb meet tomorrow.

I'll throw a pic up when my wife gets back from the kid's basketball tourney.

Had to wear arm warmers for the first hour..... Brrrr........ I toughed it out with a couple other rugged manly men, and managed to grab about 43 miles before throwing in the towel.

Barely made 70 degrees here by early afternoon. I hate winter.

No pics with bikes, they're too smart to go out in the snow.

Gee, didn't realize some people get snow so early, I had a hardcore ride with one of my roadie buddies, and the temperature didn't go below 65 degrees.

........or my favorite, cross country skiing with Mrs. Gomango.

That's on the plate for tonight.

After I re-wax her skis that is.

Now, where did I put the wax kit anyway?

we had an inch of snow nearby here last weekend. I'd be out riding in the cold if I weren't still fighting off the remains of a sinus infection. The cold air might help me out though... never know. Oh, and it's hunting season; one has to have priorities.

In the lower 60s here in the Boston area today, amazing for this time of year, and I did a great ride with friends with lots of dirt roads and paths. On the way home in the dark, I only got hit by a car once!

The Chicago Lakefront in winter. I'm hoping for several hundred more miles of riding before New Years.

Winter is decidedly not here...67 degrees with a mild breeze.

No ride nor run today; just a 4 mile family stroll around the "backyard."
