I know its just March, but I really really want to get back on the saddle. Up here in the Pacific Northwest I am used to the winters but since I have started cycling the winter just seems too long. The last couple times I have cycled it has been out in the snow with my brother in law. Everytime the weather man says it is going to be a nice day, or least a portion of the day is going to be nice, turns out just to be the opposite. Last time the weatherman said a low chance of snow in the evening, so me and my brother in law decide not to take any chances and go in morning, wow our mistake. We had wind gusts at 30-35 mph with sustained wind at 20 mph with snow. Should have brought some snowboarding goggles . It took me and bro about 2.5 hrs to cover 22.8 miles. Number didn't seem right at first until I thought about how much time I spent just slowly rolling over the ice. Oh yeah, and I did fall once, bike came out from under me due to the ice and I fell into a snow pile. Not bad except dirt got into my drive train and started to squeak really bad on the last 10 miles.
Well that is the end of rant, the weather is suppose to be "nice" this saturday so I am looking forward to another ride.
