So its Christmas eve and I haven't been on the bike since the end of Nov. (not counting the lifecycle at the local YMCA). I look outside and its not raining or snowing and the roads look as if they are trying to dry. So I think-go spend an hour or so doing laundry and maybe it will get a little less wet. Pity the fool! I come back upstairs and look outside only to see a moderate fog along with the wet roads. I look at the bike then I look outside once more hoping the weather had changed(in Wi. that sometimes only takes a few minutes) no luck there. So I wrap my shiney new Brooks in plastic and I wrap myself in lonjohns and spandex (truly a sight to behold) and off I go. As I'm riding along trying to keep my glasses clean and not seeing the forest for the fog and hoping that I'm a lot more visible than I know that I am (no bright jersy for me) I can't help but think-d_ _n that in spite of it all, it sure is nice to be outside and on the bike! Happy Holidays to all!
p.s. A 15 mile ride that gave me at least 1 ride ouside every month of 2005.
