Got my first ride in for 2009

Today club Hypoxia went for a ride & it was my first ride since Nov 9 2008 so I am a little sore this evening.

It started out a little chili, we met at the coffee shop & it was 25 degrees but after the first 10 miles it got better. I haven't ridden in cold so I wasn't sure how to dress and I thought I might be overdressed but I did good. We ended up having 9 of us & I ended up with 36 miles....

Tomorrow is supposes to be nice but a little windy but we were thinking of getting out again....

It was SOOOOOOOOO nice to get together with friends again, it has been to long. I have had trouble with getting motivated with everything going on in the last few months, but today really helped me get back on track, it really pumped me up!!!!

On a side note, the wife finally filed for divorce last week so my motto (if that is what you call it) for 2009 is; this year is for personal growth & riding bike sure does help the mind, body & soul......It is going to be a hard year trying to live on a single income, but God will provide & I'm looking for a exciting year!!!!!

Last year was my first year on a road bike & I did 4,273.4 miles & that was from March, so I think maybe I'll shoot for 6,000 this year..

Hoping to get out today as the temperature is above freezing. Only problem is the amount of ice that is about. It's going to take more than a bit of sun this morning to get rid of that so might just be a short ride to see if the bike still works.--and the legs---and the lungs.

Say hi to everyone for me.

Those pics make me miss the folks and the riding you have there.

They are serving chili at Starbucks now?

Nice looking group and background with the farm and the hills behind it. From the way everyone is bundled up, I would guess that the weather was somewhat chilly.
