New years ride is off.
Go back to work tomorrow after a 10 day break from work over Christmas and new year. Yesterday was cold so no Yard work got done but I did check over the Bike drawer to see if any of the cycling clothes are up for replacement. Luckily none of it does but surprised at how I still have some socks in their original packaging. Can't even remember buying them (Secret Santa?)
Then I checked the bike over and got it ready for today's ride. In fact I checked two bikes as if the weather is that bad- I did the MTB aswell. Don't mind cold riding but Black ice on the roads is not good.
So up at 7am- coffee and down to the shed to get the helmet, shoes and gloves inside for a warm up. You can St*ff the ride today. Where did all that white stuff come from? No- Not snow--Frost. The whole garden looks as though it has snowed and quick check on the temp and it is 20F.
I have turned into a woose. The bikes are back on the rack and I will be staying indoors today.
So all the good intentions in the world and When the mates come round at 9 for a ride- I won't be answering the door. Let them stay out there till they realise how cold it really is.
How long was I in the army? Five foot seven.
