I'm the sole minder of the puppy while my g/f is in Ireland on business until next Friday, so my long weekend rides are shot until she's back. But the puppy and I did go on a 9 mile hike this morning.

I did a solo 4 hour ride today. It was too cold to go on the club ride this morning @ 9AM (42F!), so I didn't get out the door until 11:30 or so.

Didn't get a ride in today, weather decided to return to January conditions, had to shovel the driveway this morning (grrrrrrrrr) so we are back to wet salty conditions on the roads, and I refuse to take the bike out, when there is salt on the roads, salt+aluminum = corrision, and while I don't mind seeing rust on the car, I don't want to see it on the bike!

Would have LOVED to ride, but spent the day with my daughter at her 10th b-day party. I was roller skating with 10, 10 year old girls. Not quite the same as riding, but not the end of the world either.

Didnt really plan to ride too long today but wound up doing a 56 mile loop in Bossier, Bienville, and Red River Parishes. We aint got Counties here in Louisiana LOL. The weather was nice except for a stout SW wind in my face part of the way. I dont complain when its at my back. Gonna try to do that loop with a little added tomorrow and try to remember to take the digicam. Very nice scenery here in North La this time of year.

Thats the spirit Tom! "Let the good times roll!!!!!!!!!!" I rode a 50 mile loop today and my digicam batteries went out but still managed a few pics. This is the starting point at Lock and dam 5 about 15 miles south of Bossier City This is a stretch of the 15 mile loop through East point and Crichton with almost zero traffic good for interval workouts and finally a view of the Red River from the boat launch in Coushatta about 24 miles from the starting point

Is that in an insulated pack or not ?

The only time I have had mine freeze on me it was -40 up on Mont Fort at Verbier, 2 new years ago. I do find the black insulation catches the sun so the first mouthfull on a sunny day can be quite warm.
