    Aint gona cry no more!

    I have been cryun about the weather here in Tn. rain cool not the best riding weather. Then I read the post from up north snow bitter cold stuck in the house a week at a time. I have nothing to cry about. I can always get in one and most of the time two rides a week. The early dark makes it hard sometimes but I am a truely blessed man. I need to stop cryun and start ridun. Truth is the bad weather never bothered me much this is my first year riding. I have allways been a hunter and still am. Winter is my time outdoors I never got cold till I lost 50lbs now I freeze. And 12 or 15 mph on a bike just makes it colder. I am a skinny wimp. But I am going to bundle up {that is east Tn. for lots of layers** and ride. I hope everone gets to ride soon.

    18 Mph! If it is a tail wind that would be OK. If a head wind it would be like riding up hill all the time.

    Want to feel like a wimp? I crewed for Rob Lucas in RAAM 2 Summers back and he rode across from Durango Colorado to Central KS in a day against 30-40 MPH headwinds. 277 miles in 17 hrs under those conditions.
    on light duty due to illness; please contact my assistants for forum issues. They are Siu Blue Wind, or CbadRider or the other 3 star folk. I am currently at home recovering from a couple of strokes. I am making good progress, happily.
