    43 degrees out PLUS up to 50 mph winds...

    Sounds like a nice day for a ride... All uphill, it should feel like.


    Is it this for the ride

    or

    This

    I really don't know.

    Only one way to find out!

    I would LOVE 43 F though! I've been riding in 28-32 F. Thank goodness for windproof sunglasses, shoecovers and gortex mittens!

    I wish I had that stuff.... On the bright side rule 9 now applies to me.It was light snow, heavy winds, some sleet, and just plain cold... Colder than they said, plus the winds were bad, real bad.

    What part of Mass are you in? I'm down at the Cape. It was around 40-ish, and blowing a steady 25-30 yesterday. I got hit with a couple of pretty good gusts which I'd say closed in on 50 mph. It's a little bit weird to be using the bail-out gear on the flats.

    What I should have done was take my heavy hybrid cruiser with a triple crank and a 34t bail out gear instead of my roadie. I would have traded the drops for a little more cross-wind stability and the 28 ring, halfway into the upwind leg of my route.

    I got in before the flurries started in late afternoon.
