    Ride 61 - 65 degrees in December WOW!

    A gorgeous day in the ATL> Between 64 and 70 degrees. The ride club posted a ride for today led by somone I did not know...and I would likely be the only C rider - would be yours truly. So I asked for a Cue sheet and off I went. We met in Covington - and rode about 40 miles. The ride leader helps out at project Adventure..so we bought a small gift for the kids. (The organization helps at risk kids:
    http://www.projectadventurekids.org/about.html).

    Anyway the picture below is of me and the ride organizer - a nice college student who volunteers at Project Adventure. And the other pic is of evryone on our ride today. Sorry they are a tad blury - used the camera phone.

    OH - Bike computer still onthe fritz so rely on a friends bike - 40.3 miles 15.5 AVG and some nice hills! YOWZA!! I think riding with the big boys made me try harder.

    Yeah...did I miss your post when you said you're no longer an Athena? Or were you just never an Athena and I didn't catch it? (Downside to mainly lurking )

    Also, I'm a bit jealous: we started our ride this morning at 8:10am in 34-degree temps. In SoCal! Amazing. High for today is supposed to be 62-degrees or so. Tomorrow's supposed to be much nicer: 65-degrees.

    I dream about cycling now. Today the temp was -17 celsius. There is tons of yucky snow everywhere and having any exposed skin means your skin is going to hate you. And it is still autumn - ick!

    I'm thinking about hibernating until April.

    Thank goodness the swimming pool is heated or else I may not get much more exercise.

    All my rides are going no where. Trainers suck. Keep posting pics so I can live thru you.
    Best thing about cycling is when I'm at work I'm thinking of cycling, when I'm cycling I'm thinking about cycling.

    10" of fresh snow outside, followed by 3-6" more in the morning that then switches over to freezing rain and sleet. We took our little boys sledding this morning - tough to do that in SoCal
