Well, when it drops to 60F here, it can be a real challenge to motivate myself to go riding... Sorry, DON'T STONE ME, I DIDN'T MEAN IT...

day light

I am in central Florida and I guess because of day length I want to hide under the covers rather than ride, but it's not cold ourtside and I hate not going for a long ride so why do I want to get under the covers?

In the winter my morning rides are now on the trainer but I can't wait for the weekend to get in some outdoor rides. Yesterday it was 34F a slight wind and I put in a 33 mile ride - it was great but I had the right gear on.
Still waiting for our first snow fall which is long overdue - seems that Dnvr is having all the fun this year.

Agree, just thinking about getting dressed sometimes stops the whole process.
