I did, but suffering from on-going lower back issues it was short and sweet. So I rode until I hit a calorie burn of 500 so I got in 8.3 miles. This back problem is sucking he life out of me.

I rode 24 miles on the BRR ride. It was low 40s going out and low 50s on the way back. About 3000 folks showed up for it. Like a miniature RAGBRAI in February, but with hot chocolate and schnapps.

My stitching store put together a cruise to Ensenada, so I spent Friday afternoon, all day (and much of the nights) Saturday and Sunday stitching stitching stitching. Was hoping to go for a ride today after I got home, but it's been pouring buckets most of the time, so I'm catching up on 3 days' worth of internets.

Well it was pretty nice over the weekend, in the 70's so I rode 10 miles Saturday and 12 miles Sunday. Nothing neck breaking, just a few quickies on my classic.

All last week it was bitter cold (in the 50's) so I didnt ride.
