Great job on the mileage! 70 degrees sounds good. The wind, not so much.

I see no tricycles in these photos!

You might want to consider switching from a cotton tee to a loose fitting wicking T. I switched last year...while I don't like the feel of the synthetic fabric, I no longer soak through the fabric.

yesterday morning it was -17c (1 F) before wind chill, and I froze in a cold rink @ 7 am.

These threads, and Mr. Beanz also, make me yearn for spring. Meanwhile, back to the basement trainer.

We all thought it was a bit chilly, and for us it was

We bike along the Palisadoes strip in Kingston and go right past the spot where the American Airlines airline crashed landed a few weeks ago, as a matter of fact we rode past inspectors still on the scene. Our new saying is what out for buses, cars and airplanes.

The Palisadoes is not windy in the morning but by mid day it gets blustery, we have been having overcast conditions and that probably brought on the early morning breeze.
