    It's snowing in the Northeast... did you ride?

    I froze my tuckus, but did get a ride in and even liked it up until ice on the cassette turned my MTB into a single speed.

    The error of the day... riding a bike without fenders...


    The slushy, snow covered MUP... note that I appear to be alone in my desire to ride today..?...

    Yesterday we did 32 miles on the SRT. When we turned around at Port Royal is was 54 degrees. Rode until after dark looking at the deer up in Valley Forge.

    Now?? Sitting here looking out at the snow falling. Like you, we will be waiting for Tuesday.

    Yesterday we were at Fitzwater Station for lunch. Lady asked if we bike all winter. Responded that we do but not in snow. Did I ask for this snow with my response to her?

    20 miles in-doors on the trainer watching 4th quarter of the Pitt / Cincinnati game. What a game! Instant classic.

    Yep - has been nice and brisk the past few days but very enjoyable. Saw a wolf the other day in an urban park - it was either a wolf an a very very tall coyote.

    I wanted to get out today before the snow, but had to work from 9am to 11pm. Tired now.

    It was 19 degrees in North Texas this morning. It didn't much better until very late lafternoon as far as I could tell.

    I did couch intervals.

    Just finished my coldest ride in 9 months.

    The temperature was 22f as I went out the door and it stayed below 30f.

    36 miles along the Chicago lakeshore.

    Cheers

    I woke this morning for the first snow of the season, and we had maybe 1/4" on the patio. It was a wet, sticky snow.

    I rode to work with no issues, but the roads were clear. It was rather peaceful. Oh, and it went well with the Christmas lights I put on my bike yesterday:
