    Getting Chilly - 43F

    Wife and I rode together 20 miles this am. It was about 43F when we started out, and right now it is all the way up to 50F.

    I enjoy it, and it sure cuts down on the trail traffic!

    You may not have rain but That is cool-Even for the UK. we are up in the high 50's at present but it has been raining all day. Another warm spell on the way for us starting tomorrow with temps up in the high 60's. Funnilly enough- been looking at preparing for winter today and although do not relish the cold weather- I will welcome those deserted trails.

    It will most likely be this cool and colder in New England by the end of Sep for your visit. 54F on my ride to the Post Office yesterday and very windy as the edge of Ernesto passed to our west. No one else was riding. First time I've been a "loner" since May.

    In Oct I plan to convert the custom MTB I picked up at the Yard Sale in May into my "Snow Cycle." Looking for studded tires and I have fenders to mount. I'll ride snow mobile trails and dirt roads this winter. Better than only the attic on the trainer!

    Good luck you two with cooler weather riding!

    66F and light rain this A M, coolest day since last May. I wish I could go ride.

    Getting chilly here too!

    Yup, here in bahrain its down to 42 degrees .....centigrade! And, believe it or not, we can feel the difference!

    I've just got back here from a couple of weeks in Yorkshire UK, where I'm from originally and where I was doing a bit of hiking and trail running - and in lovely 65 degree F temperatures I felt like I was turbocharged!. Still dog slow, though

    Like Mister T, I pity the poor fools that have to live with cold weather! Most of my rides start at sunrise or shortly before or shortly after. This time of year, it is typically about 78 degrees and really humid. When it gets really nice here, it may go down to around the high 50s for a while!

    No cold weather!

    Yeah Denver Fox, I had to wear some gloves last week in Fort Collins. Still wearing shorts though, but probably not for long. 70s yesterday and today - Fahrenheit...

    50 this morning. Couldn't see riding in that temperature when it was going up to 70 later in the day. Just got back from a 15 mile ride, much more pleasant.

    Over on the Western Slope of Colorado I woke up to 52 degrees this morning -- first ride this summer that my hands got cold! But what a ride! 42 miles, saw more deer than cars for the first 20 miles . . . even had two yearlings pace me for about a mile -- Only downside, decided at 25 miles to stop for a piece of fresh peach pie, only to find the Labor Day traffic had wiped out her supply. Had to settle for a scoop of Rocky Road. Ain't life tough! ;-)

    but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming --
    WOW!!! What a ride!"
