    Damn, as soon as I get close to the front, I get side swipped . Oh well that means I will just have to ride longer and more often. Wanted to ride tonight but it started raining and at 64 degrees, I have no interest in getting wet. I'll get in a quick 30 miles in the morning. Should be bright sun tomorrow.

    That was exactly my thought. Did not find out about the spokes until after I left my bike and they pulled apart the rim. Guess they only stock spokes for skinny Japanese cyclists and a big goofy looking foreigner scared them into ordering some monster gauge spokes..

    I finally got my bike going again after a month of downtime. Maybe I can be in the top 5-10 by February?

    Son of a ***, you got me by two miles. No kidding, we have been going back and forth for the last week. It's been nasty up here for the last 2 days and quite cool and I did not feel like getting sick. I came to the conclusion that I'm not an "ArcticJill" type and I'm just a fair weather rider when it's in the winter, but rain be damn in the summer. I did however, just order a heavier polartech long sleeve jersey, so watch out I will be warmer now. I'm still going to try to get out tonight, but I'm waiting for the roads to dry up a little. Tried to go last night and there was just enough water on the road to be super slippery.

    When it's the winter? The winter? Dude, this is fall weather we're having! Those folks in Texas are having winter!

    Go get yourself a decent baselayer, some riding pants, and full length gloves. Actually, with the weather we've been having I find myself quite comfortable in just regular cycling shorts, a base layer, jersey, and fingerless gloves. If it was 5-10F cooler I'd probably also throw on a wind breaker. The first 20 minutes are cool, but then the body warms up and all is well in the world.

    Hey, I'm originally from Miami.

    Actually, true story. My birthday is in mid-January (it's passed now, so you guys can hold off on the kudos).. I have strong memories of my birthday in 1980 because I switched schools on my birthday. At any rate, on that birthday I remember it was so damn cold the teacher had to wear an overcoat, gloves, and scarf in order to teach.

    This year on my birthday, 300 some odd miles north, it was 85F and sunny.

    Global warming doesn't exist my ass.

    I live about half way down the state and remember Christmas with the A/C on one year and the heater on the next... Weather patterns need to be looked at geologically not microscopically.

    That being said, my son and I used to go surfing January first every year no matter what the weather was. Sure do miss those times...

    Have to work my second job tomorrow, hope to get in my Sunday group ride though. We need to see if we can stay up near the top.

    I think bigbossman is looking at outdoor rides only. The top 4 outdoor riders are all from Florida, but just wait, spring is on its way and them Florida guys are going to start earning there top spots

    For the Clyde club? I'm looking at the top 4, and the're all from Florida. The top guy is "drwildbiker" from Lighthouse Point, FL.

    I don't see anyone in the top 8 from Colorado.....

    Well, not in my mind BUT. . . If you go into your edit profile, there is a box you can check for "Outdoor rides only" so the stats shown don't include trainer time.

    Inside me is a thin man dying to get out.

    His User Name is Howard and he is also part of several other clubs. Under the Stats -> Club and then scroll down to Clyde. Click the link and he sit atop the leader board with 841 miles, #2: drwildbiker 588, #3: me at 452, #4: Pickled_Loaf otherwise known as 51 in this forum at 413 and ScrubJ at #5 with 404. I think the when looking at the club area it list your riders by their primary club.

    I mentioned to 51 that it's interesting that a couple of big boys on hybrid are near the top at the moment. I have no belief that I will remain near the top as the weather changes and gets warmer up North, but I'm going to enjoy it while I can. I'll be happy to make my goal milage and do my best to exceed it. I am on a path to exceed by 400 miles, but I'm close pulling the trigger on a standard road bike which should help me ride a little longer, faster, stronger and smarter.
