Well, life issued conspired against me the past couple months, and I used them as a convenient excuse not to bike as much, and then not at all. Well, you get what you pay for, I guess, as I reverted a ways back from the progress I made last year bike commuting and weekend riding....and eating right. The damage was not too bad, about 18 lbs, but damage nonetheless. I went for a quick ride a couple weeks ago, 6.5 miles in the cold, and survived. Yesterday, I got back on the horse and went out for a vigorous 10 mile ride in 24*F overcast, and had a blast. This ride was the first prep ride for when my lights show up next week, and I have no real excuse to start commuting to/fro work again. I am really looking forward to it, and to getting a good jump on what I hope is to be a year filled with miles and rides, and back to lurking on BF.net.
that is all.
