It's been a while -just about a year, in fact- since it got dark before I had time to get home from work, change and get out on the road. And I didn't have my LeMond this time last year.
Now, granted, y'all will tell me I know nothing about cold. It's all relative but, OK, I'll give you that.
There's something so nice about a late Autumn ride. The air is so cool and crisp. An, even though I know the same people are out on the road as they are during the rest of the year, there's just a splendid feeling of isolation and aloneness... calm, I guess. It's peaceful. Just me and my thoughts. I love it.
Sounds like a Hallmark moment, doesn't it?
