    When not to ride Outdoors

    Well time to hit the trainer. Temp (at 2 p.m.) is 17 degrees with winds out of northwest at 35 gusting to 49. Will, however, get to watch some great recorded footage of the 2005 Giro as I sweat. Hope that many of you are having better weather (although it sounds like eastern CO and KS are getting hit pretty hard).

    17F and winds of 35-49 mph are grounds for not riding in my book.
    35-49F and winds of 17 mph however, would be a great day for a ride.

    It is just cold and windy here, but the roadblock on I-70 is (was?) just a bit east of here closed all the way to Kansas.

    We got no snow. So goes it in Colorado weather. Microclimates all over the place.

    What a Whoose !!! Not you--- ME. Just the thought of that temperature and that wind strength and I Put another log on the fire and got another Cognac.

    I don't mind cold, or rain, or heat, and I reckon that I can always find a sheltered route to get out of a stiff wind, or take adavantage of it. Put the rain and wind, or cold and wind, together and I'll find a maintenance job somewhere. Now where's that new bottle of Brandy.

    gusting up to 60 on sunday here - getting out for a ride was NOT a priority for me!
    Weather today: Hot. Humid. Potholes.

    Good idea, but I'll substitute Glenlivet!
