OK So after a long time off the bike with a nagging cough - I rode today with one of my riding groupd (C4 Covington/Conyers Cycling Club). We rode form Conyers to Decatur - to a brew pub for lunch then rode back. Last time I rode in the cold I was freezing! So last night I bought a Bacalava(sp?) Which is like a big ski mask, booties to cover my shoes, and a head band to cover my ears in case i took the ski mask off. Anyway - I also wore Long underwear- tops and bottoms, gloves, layers!! And I was toasty!! I proved I could do it and be happy!! We had a great ride. I was riding with the leaders of our group - a bunch of guys who I never get to ride with cause they are fast! We all rode together for most of the ride. We went slow- but everyone seemed happy!!
Ride Time 4:29:39
Caloried for half the ride (forgot to turn the stop watch onfor the first half): 1363
Avg pulse 137 (2nd half of ride)
Anyway - It was fun!! And I am off tomorrow for another ride with a woman I met at Performance Bike. Winter - no biggie!!! As long as you dress right.
